Do you like to write fiction or non-fiction? Check out the Great River Writes – Winona Writers Group that meets every second Friday of the Month in our Learning Plaza (also available through Zoom).
Participants receive a monthly reminder of the meeting along with writing prompts. Pick one of the three writing prompts or write your own. Stories must be one page, single-spaced. At the meeting, participants will share their stories and provide a critique to others.
Registration is required. Please register using this online form.
May 14th (Library Learning Plaza)
We are excited to announce this month we plan to meet outside at the Library Learning Plaza for sharing and critiquing our writing. We'll meet from 3:30 -5:30, though we may end early depending on the number of participants.
Masks are preferred and social distancing is encouraged. Everyone attending will need to sign a liability waiver.
Bring your own chair if possible. There are two benches available, and the library can bring out a chair if necessary.
We will also have a zoom option for anyone who can't make the in-person event. Please register using this online form.
Bring a copy of your writing that you wish to share (up to 2000 words) and the library staff will make copies for the group.
As always, feel free to use the prompts below, change them, or ignore them and write your own idea. We will read aloud, then share verbal comments and suggestions. We hope to see you at the meeting.
1. Celebrations. There are so many reasons, both trivial and profound, and so many ways, both large and small, to celebrate. Write about a memorable celebration.
2. Spring is here and we're looking forward to the new normal. Write about beginnings.
