SWAG Writers (the Staunton-Waynesboro-Augusta Group of Writers), the organization I started a couple of years ago, continues to grow. Tonight we had a terrific turnout for our monthly gathering–the WriterDay and OpenMic Night–which occurs on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, starting at 6pm, at the Darjeeling Café in Staunton.
Tonight’s group was especially fun. We had 16 readers, including a wide variety of styles, genres, and ages. Some serious stuff, some dark stuff, and some lighter work was included. And besides the readers we had a dozen or so folks who came out just to listen (plus a few patrons of the café who had no choice).
We’re grateful to the Darjeeling Café for hosting this event each month!
This month we also have a second event, a talk by Charles Shields, biographer of both Harper Lee and Kurt Vonnegut. That talk will be held on March 28, at 7pm, at the Spencer Center for Civic and Global Engagement at Mary Baldwin College. The talk is free and open to the public.
Let me know if you’d like to be on the email list to receive notice of future events.
