Writer’s Group

May 11 @ 7:00 PM UTC-5

“The purpose of a story is to enrich your experience. A story doesn’t POINT you there, it puts you there. In a sense, a story is a form of transportation. It lifts you from where you are reading and carries you to another time and another place.”

“The Writer’s Group gathers each month at the Cultural Centre in Bird Island. It includes poets, essayists, short story writers, novelists and some who simply feel the urge to scribble something down on paper. It’s an eclectic bunch that finds commonality in our shared reverence for the written word. Mosty, what we do is talk…and talk…and talk. We share our work with one another. We talk about writing in general and we talk about life. Some might think it odd to talk about life in a former funeral home, but we don’t think that at all. As writers we understand that it’s not odd, that it’s just ironic and writer’s love irony. It’s also why we love the Cultural Centre, a place that celebrates irony and life. So, if you feel the urge to scribble, why not join us? We meet at 7pm on the second Tuesday each month. Our only requirement, our only standard, is a love of the written word. And we talk, a lot.”
