Wednesday, April 9th Wordsmith Wednesdays – Book Club & Writing Group 7 pm

On the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month, any interested adults can join us from 7-9pm for Wordsmith Wednesday: a new, combination book club / writing group at Amazing Grace! Each month or so we will divide up into two groups to pick a new fiction and non-fiction book. The first half of each meeting will consist of discussion based on the two chosen books. The last half of each session will be dedicated to writing… Each meeting we will choose a writing prompt out of the hat and the mission (should you choose to accept it), will be to write a poem, short story, or essay on the topic. The next time we gather, willing individuals will share their work in a safe, non-judgmental setting. This is the perfect group for those who say they would like to read/write more but haven’t yet made it happen! Bonus: it’s 1/2 price bottles of wine on Wednesday nights, so we can share a bottle or two as we chat! Come check it out! If you can’t make every meeting, no worries! We will post updates like writing prompts and discussion questions on our new Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/WordsmithWednesdays) to keep you in the loop!
