How and Why We Write

Featuring Lynn Goodwin Brown, Beth Clark, Judith Finch, Jan Hersh and Gus Slavin.

This No Cost Event is open to the public and refreshments will be provided. Your RSVP is needed to plan our event location and refreshments.

These very talented members of our AAUW branch are successfully published authors doing what they love. Lynn, Beth, Judith, Jan and Gus will talk with you about their writing, how they’ve become published authors, and give you tips to help you write for your enjoyment and more. Discussion will include poetry, memoirs, family history, fiction, non-fiction, technical writing, magazine articles, blogs, and writing book reviews. You will also learn about the benefits of writing coaches and websites, workshops, reading groups, and writing contests. Two tips for now: There are no mistakes – only new material, and you don’t lose until you quit trying!

Even if you’ve never considered writing, come to our program! Lynn, Beth, Judith, Jan and Gus will share their passion with you and you’ll enjoy the company of fellow branch members.

RSVPs are due by end of day, November 3, to Holly Sauer. Please contact Holly with any questions about the program.
