A well-crafted cover letter can set an applicant apart from the pack and catch the attention of hiring managers. Learn how to write cover letters that tell a story, present yourself favorably as a candidate, and get you the job! 

Session 1: Monday, October 26 from 4pm to 5:30pm. Learn the anatomy of a well-crafted cover letter, read sample letters that impressed hiring managers at various companies, find resources to help you learn more, and discuss common struggles with writing cover letters. Participants will then take what they've learned to write practice cover letters for a specific job listing for the next session. 

Session 2: Monday, November 2 from 4pm to 5:30pm. Participants will share their sample cover letters and receive group feedback from others, in addition to a writing tutor. We will only read as many letters as we can get to in an hour and a half.

Digital Program: Tools for Workplace Collaboration

If you have a Gmail account with Google, you also have access to helpful digital tools like Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, and Drive. These applications can help you work with a team in a workplace or remotely from home, and each of them are free to use. Join us for this three-part series to get an introduction to using these tools to collaborate with other workers for business, nonprofit work, organizing, and more.

Intro to Google Docs -- November 9 at 4PM
Learn how to create and format text on this word processing program. Similar to Microsoft Word, you can use Google Docs to make letters, formal documents with a table of contents, resumes, and more. Work with a team on the same document by sharing editing rights and inserting comments for your team's review. 

Intro to Google Forms -- November 16 at 4PM
Sometimes you may want to survey staff, customers, or organization stakeholders. Use Google Forms to easily collect and analyze survey data that may be helpful for you to begin a new project, adjust your operations, or offer new services. Learn the versatile ways you can use this tool in any workplace.

Intro to Google Slides -- November 23 at 4PM
A presentation can make a lecture or webinar more engaging and memorable to participants. It also allows you to share information in a visual medium that lasts longer than an hour-long talk. Similar to Microsoft PowerPoint, learn how to create slides, use templates, arrange visual images without violating copyright laws, and more. 

Registration is required to attend each of these program. You will receive a Zoom invitation the morning of the program.

Digital Program: Connecticut and the Pandemic of 1918

United States Public health service flyer, 1918 – Library of Congress, American Memory

Join us with Walt Woodward, State Historian and Associate Professor of History at the University of Connecticut, to learn about the deadliest disease to ever hit Connecticut. The influenza pandemic of 1918, like COVID-19, stopped life as people knew it in its tracks. This topic was the subject of his recent podcast episode of "Grating the Nutmeg", and asks questions we're asking about today's pandemic to the pandemic of a century ago. Where did it come from? How did it spread? Who did it affect the most? How did the medical community, state, and local governments respond to the threat? What social distancing measures were taken? After his presentation, there will be time for a question and answer session with participants. 

Registration is required to attend this program. You will receive a Zoom invitation the morning of the program.

Visit Dr. Cannon's website to learn more. Register for one or all three of the seminars listed below.

Balanced Nutrition for Better Health
Wednesday, September 23 @ 4PM

Learn about the fundamentals of good nutrition from a naturopathic doctor. It's about more than the old food pyramid you may remember! We'll talk about how to combine foods appropriately, eat to support your digestion, and more. Time will be available for questions.

Gut Health and Food Sensitivities
Wednesday, October 28 @ 4PM

Did you know your digestive system plays a big role in your overall health? It impacts your immune system, your brain, your joints, and even more. In addition, food sensitivties may add chronic stress not only to your gut, but also to your body as a whole. Time will be available for questions.

Immune Function, Heading into the Colder Months
Wednesday, November 11 @ 4PM

The winter months--and even the impending colder weather--can be hard on physical health for many people. Combine that with holiday eating and stress, plus cold-and-flu season, and it can be more challenging to feel your best. Learn more about ways to potentially support your immune function. Please note that this talk is for educational purposes only. Time will be available for questions.

You must register to attend this program. To protect the security of the meeting, the join link will be provided the day of the meeting via email. You can find more resources about how to use Zoom, a video conferencing program, on their website.

Digital Program: My Life Growing Up in A Cult

Join us with author Patricia Walsh Chadwick for a book talk about her memoir Little Sister. The author sheds light on her childhood experience, growing up in a religious cult in the 1950s and 1960s, with no access to the outside world or its influences--radio, newspapers, television--or contact with anyone, including family. Her only exposure was a community of 100 people, 39 of which were children. She also discusses how it was to be evicted from the community at the age of 17 and face a world she had been taught to believe was full of sin and danger. 

Registration is required to attend this program. You will receive a Zoom invitation the morning of the program.

Digital Program: Tools for Workplace Collaboration

If you have a Gmail account with Google, you also have access to helpful digital tools like Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, and Drive. These applications can help you work with a team in a workplace or remotely from home, and each of them are free to use. Join us for this three-part series to get an introduction to using these tools to collaborate with other workers for business, nonprofit work, organizing, and more.

Intro to Google Docs -- November 9 at 4PM
Learn how to create and format text on this word processing program. Similar to Microsoft Word, you can use Google Docs to make letters, formal documents with a table of contents, resumes, and more. Work with a team on the same document by sharing editing rights and inserting comments for your team's review. 

Intro to Google Forms -- November 16 at 4PM
Sometimes you may want to survey staff, customers, or organization stakeholders. Use Google Forms to easily collect and analyze survey data that may be helpful for you to begin a new project, adjust your operations, or offer new services. Learn the versatile ways you can use this tool in any workplace.

Intro to Google Slides -- November 23 at 4PM
A presentation can make a lecture or webinar more engaging and memorable to participants. It also allows you to share information in a visual medium that lasts longer than an hour-long talk. Similar to Microsoft PowerPoint, learn how to create slides, use templates, arrange visual images without violating copyright laws, and more. 

Registration is required to attend each of these program. You will receive a Zoom invitation the morning of the program.

Digital Program: Mystic Conversations on Race

logo for st mark's anti racism team

St. Mark's Anti-Racism Team will be "re-starting" holding a monthly intentional book club on the topic of racism. This intentional book club, Mystic Conversations on Race (MyCOR), is intended for people who understand that the toxicity of historic and contemporary racism must be confronted...in our hearts, in our minds, and in our communities.

We are "restarting" in September because MyCOR "live" was shutdown after an initial meeting at the Mystic & Noank Library in February 2020 due to the pandemic. Events since have shown that the need to educate ourselves on racism in both historical and contemporary contexts is as important as ever. We are "intentional," as a book club, because we "intend" that our reading, discussion, and reflection will lead to personal change and broader action. We will reboot virtually, using the Google Classroom platform and meeting on a monthly basis for small group discussions via Zoom.

In this book club, we will reflect on texts (fiction and nonfiction), films, and podcasts on the origins of race, the processes and effects of racism, and on white complicity and supremacy. We will be reading (among others) Toni Morrison, Ibram X. Kendi, Isabel Wilkerson, Dorothy Roberts, Imani Perry, and more. We will also be viewing/listening to films/podcasts by Katrina Browne, Ava Duvernay, and The New York Times' "1619 Project." 

Click here to view a schedule of meetings and the accompanying material(s) to be discussed.

Please register: Please email start@stmarksmystic.org with "Mystic Conversations on Race" as the subject and include your name and phone number. 

QUESTIONS? Call 860-572-9549 or email start@stmarksmystic.org. A member of the St. Mark's Anti-Racism Task Force (StART) will get back to you.

Digital Program: Book Writers Group

open book with pencil

We've gone digital!

Come join a committed writing group: the Book Writers! Whether you're all finished with 50,000 words from National Novel Writing Month and want to go to the next step, need to make the finishing touches on a manuscript, or you're just getting started, one of the best ways to keep going is to work with a group of other writers with their own projects and pursuits to keep you motivated. Sign up for a workshop slot and get serious about getting published. 

Before each meeting, we read two pieces of writing from a group member. Then, we get together, discuss, critique, and share our reactions and feedback. Please contact Erik at the Library to learn how to access the next meeting's workshop piece.

Registration is required to attend this program. You will receive a Zoom invitation the morning of the program.

Digital Program: Tools for Workplace Collaboration

If you have a Gmail account with Google, you also have access to helpful digital tools like Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, and Drive. These applications can help you work with a team in a workplace or remotely from home, and each of them are free to use. Join us for this three-part series to get an introduction to using these tools to collaborate with other workers for business, nonprofit work, organizing, and more.

Intro to Google Docs -- November 9 at 4PM
Learn how to create and format text on this word processing program. Similar to Microsoft Word, you can use Google Docs to make letters, formal documents with a table of contents, resumes, and more. Work with a team on the same document by sharing editing rights and inserting comments for your team's review. 

Intro to Google Forms -- November 16 at 4PM
Sometimes you may want to survey staff, customers, or organization stakeholders. Use Google Forms to easily collect and analyze survey data that may be helpful for you to begin a new project, adjust your operations, or offer new services. Learn the versatile ways you can use this tool in any workplace.

Intro to Google Slides -- November 23 at 4PM
A presentation can make a lecture or webinar more engaging and memorable to participants. It also allows you to share information in a visual medium that lasts longer than an hour-long talk. Similar to Microsoft PowerPoint, learn how to create slides, use templates, arrange visual images without violating copyright laws, and more. 

Registration is required to attend each of these program. You will receive a Zoom invitation the morning of the program.

Digital Program: The Life and Times of Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May Alcott (born November 29, 1832 - 1888) is most famous for Little Women, a novel that shaped the way many women since the Victorian era have defined girlhood and family. Alcott was also a Civil War nurse, an avid supporter of women's suffrage, and, through her writing, the sole breadwinner for her family. Local author Ruth Crocker's presentation reveals Alcott's fascinating path to fame as an author and the role of famous transcendentalist writers like Thoreau and Emerson in her life. Join us to celebrate the life and achievements of one of America's most well-known literary figures. 

Ruth W. Crocker is the author of The Secret Life of Louisa May Alcott, a one-act play based on the writings, diaries and journal entries of Ms. Alcott. Ruth has a special interest in women writers of the nineteenth century. Her essays and nonfiction articles have appeared in The Gettysburg Review, Grace Magazine, O-Dark-Thirty, T.A.P.S. Magazine, Bennington Review, Persimmon Tree, The Saturday Evening Post, Redux, and several trade magazines. Her memoir, Those Who Remain: Remembrance and Reunion After War, received the Benjamin Franklin Silver Medal for nonfiction, and her book People of Yellowstone received the Foreword Review Book of the Year Award in 2017. She holds a PhD from the University of Connecticut, and an MFA in Creative writing from Bennington College.

Digital Program: Mystic Conversations on Race

logo for st mark's anti racism team

St. Mark's Anti-Racism Team will be "re-starting" holding a monthly intentional book club on the topic of racism. This intentional book club, Mystic Conversations on Race (MyCOR), is intended for people who understand that the toxicity of historic and contemporary racism must be confronted...in our hearts, in our minds, and in our communities.

We are "restarting" in September because MyCOR "live" was shutdown after an initial meeting at the Mystic & Noank Library in February 2020 due to the pandemic. Events since have shown that the need to educate ourselves on racism in both historical and contemporary contexts is as important as ever. We are "intentional," as a book club, because we "intend" that our reading, discussion, and reflection will lead to personal change and broader action. We will reboot virtually, using the Google Classroom platform and meeting on a monthly basis for small group discussions via Zoom.

In this book club, we will reflect on texts (fiction and nonfiction), films, and podcasts on the origins of race, the processes and effects of racism, and on white complicity and supremacy. We will be reading (among others) Toni Morrison, Ibram X. Kendi, Isabel Wilkerson, Dorothy Roberts, Imani Perry, and more. We will also be viewing/listening to films/podcasts by Katrina Browne, Ava Duvernay, and The New York Times' "1619 Project." 

Click here to view a schedule of meetings and the accompanying material(s) to be discussed.

Please register: Please email start@stmarksmystic.org with "Mystic Conversations on Race" as the subject and include your name and phone number. 

QUESTIONS? Call 860-572-9549 or email start@stmarksmystic.org. A member of the St. Mark's Anti-Racism Task Force (StART) will get back to you.

Each session will include an introduction, followed by 10 minutes of guided relaxation, 24 minutes of guided sitting meditation practice, 5 to 10 minutes of contemplation time, followed by optional discussion. Our guide is Pamala Lewis, who teaches guided meditations and Mindful Yoga at the Mystic Y, is the coordinator of the New London Community of Mindfulness, and is a devoted student and meditation practitioner of more than 25 years. No prior experience necessary. 

You must register to attend this program. To protect the security of the meeting, the join link will be provided the day of the meeting via email.

We've gone digital!

Whether you're all finished with 50,000 words from National Novel Writing Month and want to go to the next step, need to make the finishing touches on a manuscript, or you're just getting started, one of the best ways to keep going is to work with a group of other writers with their own projects and pursuits to keep you motivated. Sign up for a workshop slot and get serious about getting published. 

Before each meeting, we read two pieces of writing from a group member. Then, we get together, discuss, critique, and share our reactions and feedback. Please contact Erik at the Library to learn how to access the next meeting's workshop piece.
