Special Events

 

San Carlos Library Workshops
From Carole Bumpus, Volunteer Coordinator

 

As of this January 2018, our California Writers Club, San Francisco Peninsula Branch, will be starting a series of events with one of our local libraries, the San Carlos Library, located at 610 Elm St, San Carlos, CA 94070.

We have been asked to help them form a monthly writers group, wherein we will take turns teaching other writers some of the necessary skills of writing. Held on the 3rd Wednesday night of the month, from 7-9 p.m., the first of the series will be led by member teacher Laurel Anne Hill who has stepped up to the plate to teach: “Breathing Life Into Your Writing: Story-Writing Basics.”

For the month of February, Pratibha Kelapure will be teaching on the basics of poetry called: “But I Can’t Write a Poem.”

If you have a subject or a scintillating idea that you would like to present to the San Carlos Writers Group, please get in touch with me to see if it would be a good fit. We are organizing a total of twelve classes per year.

Because we have offered to help the San Carlos Library with this project, they have reciprocated by offering rooms in which we can hold several gatherings, including panel discussions, Fault Zone readings, and special speaker events. All of these events will be free and open to the public, and we will be able to sell our books and connect with the local community in a fuller measure. Again, if you have ideas you would like to pursue, contact me. This is our year to extend our talents out and beyond our general meetings. Think big!
