There is something to be said about the month of September. Oddly, being the ninth month of the year, it is a beginning for many groups, clubs, and organizations.
For its part, The North Grenville Writers Circle has confirmed that Workshop programming will resume on September 12, 2022, after being paused because of COVID. The series will take place on Monday nights from 5 pm -6:50 pm at the Kemptville Branch of the North Grenville Public Library (NGPL) and will run until December 5.
Hosted by the NGPL as part of adult programming, workshops are open to the public at no charge. Prior series participants have included fiction and non-fiction enthusiasts, ranging from those just thinking about becoming an author, aspiring novelists, and traditionally and self-published authors. Participants are encouraged to attend all workshops. However, each session can stand alone and does not require previous knowledge.
Members and Friends of the circle have volunteered to lead individual workshop sessions on topics specific to the craft and business of writing. The series is suitable for those looking to take part in social learning activities, whether the goal is to complete a manuscript or short piece of writing, or to gain a better understanding of the realities and expectations of traditional or self-publishing through shared experience and/or research.
Regional Author Jen Pretty says: “North Grenville Writers Circle is more than a social group. It’s a place to learn your craft, gain valuable insight into the industry, find support, and develop into the kind of writer you want to be.”
