North Eastern Writers Inc. will be presenting a free evening of poetry at the Library ‘The Writes of Spring’ on Wednesday 28 September 2016.
Come along to the Relaxed Reading Area of the Library and hear a range of emotive poetry and prose readings from members of the North Eastern Writers and the general public.
Or if you are a budding poet why not perform your piece? It costs $5 to participate and there is a three minute limit for each performer. Registration is from 6pm. Bare your soul, make a social comment, make us laugh or rap. Whatever your style of poetry, you will be welcome.
A wine and cheese supper will be served. Book online or telephone the Library on 8397 7333.
To all the budding young writers out there, consider coming to our new monthly Young Writer’s Group, starting Wed 11 March from 4.30-6pm. This group offers a brilliant opportunity for teens and young adults from all walks of life to come together and work on their writing and discuss different styles of writing they admire or loath.
It will be led by Kim Kirchner, our Youth Services Officer, who is also an ex-English teacher, literary enthusiast and passionate book lover!
The best way to become a writer is to start writing.
Kim will also be there to provide feedback on personal work and inspiration to pat down a creative style.
If you, your children or anyone you know is interested in coming to the Young Writer’s Group, simply come along!
If you have any questions for Kim or would like to introduce yourself beforehand, by all means send her an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Or perhaps you’ve dabbled for years, maybe even written a story or two and want to increase your chances of becoming a published writer.
“How can the Library help me?” I hear you ask.
Step one:Read, read and read widely and critically – dissect those novels. Get a feel for plots, writing styles, character development, scene description, character point-of-view, beginnings, middles and endings.
