An Awesome Collaboration

Take some teen-age authors, mix them with an instructor, guide and confident, put them in a library that  thinks teens  have promise  and you get Aspiring Authors’ Workshop.  This program of the Chatham Community Library, started in January 2011, offers young people, ages 12-18, the opportunity to learn and practice the art of writing.  

Under the tutelage of Christie Kinsey, Children’s and Youth Services Librarian, the group has published their first of what hopefully will be annual anthologies.  This first one, titled “AAWesome, A collaboration of young authors “is available on Amazon, with all proceeds reverting to the program.

Poetry at Joyful Jewel

Dear Joyful Writers,

Just wanted to give you a heads up that we are planning a 2-day Joyful Jewel 2nd Anniversary Celebration September 15 & 16.  We've invited musicians to pick times during the weekend to play a few songs, and I'm wondering if some of you would like to read your poetry in between musical acts.  If this appeals to you, just let me know and about what time you'd like to come.  We would so love to have you come celebrate with us -- whether you read or not!

Peace, Mariah
