In the run up to the launch of Every Second Tuesday on Wednesday 9 December, each member of Elwood Writers will be introducing one of their pieces from the anthology. These teasers will appear on the Elwood Writers website, so if you’re not already following the blog and want to be sure of seeing every post, press the ‘follow’ button on the home page, here.
A reminder that our launch event will be online through Readings. To ensure you receive the link on the day, please register here. As it’s an online event, there are no geographical barriers to attending. The event is free, and the only requirement is an internet connection. And should the time difference be prohibitive, book a ticket anyway as the event will be recorded and a link to the video sent to all registered participants, whether they attend on the day or not.
So keep your eyes peeled for our anthology teasers over the next couple of weeks. Coming up shortly, Jennifer Bryce will talk about her short story ‘Duets’.
We are delighted to have the Elwood Writers group – Jennifer Bryce, Margaret McCaffrey, Helen McDonald and Barry Lee Thompson – join us online to discuss Every Second Tuesday. A new anthology of poetry, fiction and memoir, this kaleidoscope of stories spans the globe from the trenches of France in World War One to a dystopian Australia, via contemporary Harlem and the streets of northern England. The Elwood Writers will chat about their book and their group with award-winning local author Lee Kofman.
As it’s an online event, geography is no bar to attending. There are no limits to how many people can come along, so feel free to share this invitation far and wide. And if you’re unable to make it on the day, book a ticket anyway to automatically receive a recording to watch at your leisure.
If only Elwood Writers could go along to this. Not just because we adore a good old ice-cream social, but because three of our writers have work included in this terrific anthology. More about that later. Congratulations to Margaret, Helen, and Barry, and to all of the other contributors in this latest edition of AWR.
Friday 14 June, Wilkes University, Henry Student Center Ballroom (2nd floor), 7:30pm for readings, mingling, and ice-cream.
