Update on homework and schedule new blog address

Calling All Writers,

All writers or aspiring writers,

Are you writing a memoir for yourself, your family or to be published?  Do you want to learn more about writing?  Do you want to share your writing with others?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions, please come to the next Story Circle at the Safety Harbor Library on July 17th at 6 pm. 

At our gatherings we write a little, read a little, learn a little and discuss writing in general. 

The monthly meetings for the Story Circle are the third Wednesday of each month at the Safety Harbor Library and the first Wednesday at the Largo Library both are from 6-7:45pm.  Please mark your calendar. 

Safety Harbor Library     101 2nd St North     Safety Harbor  34695        727-724-1525

Largo Library                  120 Central Park Drive    Largo  33771                727-587-6715   

Your assignment, in 600 words or less: 
Think about one of the most significant relationships in your life.  It can be one you have now or something from your past.  Pick a relationship that challenged you to enlarge your sense of self.

What did you learn?

How did you grow?

What did you give?

What did you lose?

What was the most important gift to yourself?

Remember dialog and setting.  Six hundred words is not a lot, so pick your words carefully.  Bring your assignment with you and read it to the group. You will receive gentle, helpful feedback and best of all, encouragement.

It is not too late for this month:  Florida Writers Association (FWA)
meets the 2nd Thursday of every month at the main library in St Petersburg
from 5:30 - 7:45pm.  Mark your calendars.  Everyone is welcome.
