    Contact: Reference Desk   725-5242 x510   
   

Introducing...the Fireside Writers, a new writing group in Brunswick!

If you like to write, but need time and a place to do it, please come join us! On any given Friday, from 10-11:30 am, consider coming to a writing session in Brunswick at the Curtis Memorial Library in the beautiful Fireplace Room of the CML's 1904 Building. The concept for the group is simple: 

"I love the quiet that comes over a writing room, and the community that builds from this shared silence. That’s what this writing group is all about. We will gather as writers, simply to write in the quiet company of one another, in one of the library’s coziest spaces – not to critique each other’s work (although of course that’s good practice, too!), but to write fireside, for a dedicated time in an extraordinary place." --Molly McGrath, host of the Fireside Writers

Fireside Writers is a drop-in program (registration is not needed--you can come once, occasionally, or weekly), open to the public, with an open door policy--all abilities and ages are welcome. Free wifi is available. Bring your own notebooks and pens or laptops. A beautiful rug is underfoot, Captain Skolfield's ship in on the mantelpiece, and lamps, buttery leather couches and armchairs, and rocking chairs await you. Portraits of Captain and Mrs. Curtis welcome you. Free coffee is in the lobby, and fires will be lit in the wintertime.

misc_none 5:30 PM  -  7:00 PM Creative Writing Group Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Sarah Brown     sbrown @ curtislibrary.com
   

A monthly, introductory-level writing group run by an author of novels and stories, for anyone interested in applying their language skills to creative endeavors. While the meetings will be geared to fiction, poets are welcome too--and so are people who've been (perhaps secretly) working on various writing projects, but could benefit from group exercises and discussions, as well as reading one's work out loud in a supportive, friendly environment. Homework will be given. Elements of writing, such as word use and punctuation, will be in play--and so will the process of finding a voice and a style, then taking the steps to use them.

Ellen Cooney lives in Phippsburg. Her most recent novel, her ninth, is The Mountaintop School for Dogs And Other Second Chances, published in 2015 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Her stories have appeared widely, in The New Yorker and many literary journals. A Massachusetts native, she is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation. She taught creative writing at Boston College and the Harvard Extension School, and as a writer in residence at MIT. In Maine, she was a visiting writer at the University of Maine/Farmington, and now serves as Consulting Editor for the journal The Maine Review. Her website is http://ellencooney.com/.

    Contact: Sarah Brown     sbrown @ curtislibrary.com
   

A monthly, introductory-level writing group run by an author of novels and stories, for anyone interested in applying their language skills to creative endeavors. While the meetings will be geared to fiction, poets are welcome too--and so are people who've been (perhaps secretly) working on various writing projects, but could benefit from group exercises and discussions, as well as reading one's work out loud in a supportive, friendly environment. Homework will be given. Elements of writing, such as word use and punctuation, will be in play--and so will the process of finding a voice and a style, then taking the steps to use them.

Ellen Cooney lives in Phippsburg. Her most recent novel, her ninth, is The Mountaintop School for Dogs And Other Second Chances, published in 2015 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Her stories have appeared widely, in The New Yorker and many literary journals. A Massachusetts native, she is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation. She taught creative writing at Boston College and the Harvard Extension School, and as a writer in residence at MIT. In Maine, she was a visiting writer at the University of Maine/Farmington, and now serves as Consulting Editor for the journal The Maine Review. Her website is http://ellencooney.com/.

    Contact: Sarah Brown     sbrown @ curtislibrary.com
   

A monthly, introductory-level writing group run by an author of novels and stories, for anyone interested in applying their language skills to creative endeavors. While the meetings will be geared to fiction, poets are welcome too--and so are people who've been (perhaps secretly) working on various writing projects, but could benefit from group exercises and discussions, as well as reading one's work out loud in a supportive, friendly environment. Homework will be given. Elements of writing, such as word use and punctuation, will be in play--and so will the process of finding a voice and a style, then taking the steps to use them.

Ellen Cooney lives in Phippsburg. Her most recent novel, her ninth, is The Mountaintop School for Dogs And Other Second Chances, published in 2015 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Her stories have appeared widely, in The New Yorker and many literary journals. A Massachusetts native, she is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation. She taught creative writing at Boston College and the Harvard Extension School, and as a writer in residence at MIT. In Maine, she was a visiting writer at the University of Maine/Farmington, and now serves as Consulting Editor for the journal The Maine Review. Her website is http://ellencooney.com/. She blogs at https://ellencooney.tumblr.com/.

    Contact: Sarah Brown     sbrown @ curtislibrary.com
   

A monthly, introductory-level writing group run by an author of novels and stories, for anyone interested in applying their language skills to creative endeavors. While the meetings will be geared to fiction, poets are welcome too--and so are people who've been (perhaps secretly) working on various writing projects, but could benefit from group exercises and discussions, as well as reading one's work out loud in a supportive, friendly environment. Homework will be given. Elements of writing, such as word use and punctuation, will be in play--and so will the process of finding a voice and a style, then taking the steps to use them.

Ellen Cooney lives in Phippsburg. Her most recent novel, her ninth, is The Mountaintop School for Dogs And Other Second Chances, published in 2015 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Her stories have appeared widely, in The New Yorker and many literary journals. A Massachusetts native, she is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation. She taught creative writing at Boston College and the Harvard Extension School, and as a writer in residence at MIT. In Maine, she was a visiting writer at the University of Maine/Farmington, and now serves as Consulting Editor for the journal The Maine Review. Her website is http://ellencooney.com/.
