Fireside Writers Writing Group

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.

Creative Writing Group

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/.

AMC Potluck & Presentation

Appalachian Mountain Club

Maine Chapter

Potluck and Presentation

Connecting Rivers, People and Fish - By Bike

 Join us for this unique presentation on fish passage and biking in Europe.  Alicia Heyburn, of Brunswick, spent five weeks last summer on a solo bicycle tour from the source of the Rhine River in the Swiss Alps, to the outlet at the North Sea near Amsterdam. Traveling on an exceptional network of bike paths, she experienced the various characters of the river along its 1300 km course - wild, tamed, power-producing, awe-inspiring, industrial and bucolic; and met with people who are working to improve river conditions for migratory fish, such as salmon. 

In her presentation you will learn about Europe's extensive international network of bike trails, free cultural exchange and accommodation services, the stages and benefits of re-naturalizing a river, and how to travel alone without being lonely or turn an interest into an expedition.

Presentation starts at 7pm.  Optional Potluck starts at 6pm - please bring a dish to share and help us be green by bringing your own silverware, plate and cup.

Potluck and Presentation

Connecting Rivers, People and Fish - By Bike

 Join us for this unique presentation on fish passage and biking in Europe.  Alicia Heyburn, of Brunswick, spent five weeks last summer on a solo bicycle tour from the source of the Rhine River in the Swiss Alps, to the outlet at the North Sea near Amsterdam. Traveling on an exceptional network of bike paths, she experienced the various characters of the river along its 1300 km course - wild, tamed, power-producing, awe-inspiring, industrial and bucolic; and met with people who are working to improve river conditions for migratory fish, such as salmon. 

In her presentation you will learn about Europe's extensive international network of bike trails, free cultural exchange and accommodation services, the stages and benefits of re-naturalizing a river, and how to travel alone without being lonely or turn an interest into an expedition.

Creative Writing Group

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/.

Craft Meetup

Are you a knowledgeable knitter, breezy beader, warmhearted weaver, quixotic quilter, rascally rug hooker, spacial scrapbooker or charismatic crafter of any kind?

If so, please check out our Monday night Craft Meet-Up.

If you like to get together to craft, get inspired, and learn from others with a DIY aesthetic, then this group is for you.

All skill levels are most welcome and beginners will usually be able to get advice from members with more experience — the only requirement is your enthusiasm!

Bring a project you’re working on and get ready to share knowledge, learn, and have fun!

When?

Monday nights, 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Who?

Any crafter. All skill levels welcome!
