Writing Circle Meets Next August 12

An ecumenical writing circle meets each month at Heatherhope Farm. Usually, that is. This July we are taking a break.

The purpose of the group is to explore and express our faith through writing.  We seek to offer mutual support as we deepen our understanding of God’s Spirit moving within and around us. We also strive to strengthen our ability to witness to God’s love for others. We do this by working to be honest and trustworthy in sharing our writing with each other and by supporting one another’s work of sharing writing with other audiences.

The group continues to meet, usually on the second Sunday of each month at 4 p.m. Our next meeting will be August 12.

We are certainly open to new members. If you are interested in joining the circle please contact John and Connie Seraphine of Heatherhope Farm. See the “Contact Us” page of this heatherhopefarm.com web site.

The simple format of the circle at this time includes prayer, members reading their own work or a work by another writing that touches them, a time for constructive feedback and informal discussion of the craft of writing.

Sessions will last from 90 minutes to no more than two hours.

We are also working on starting an independent web site for the group. Watch here for further details.
