OPPORTUNITIE
S FOR WRITERS
Most Fiction Among Friends events can accommodate a limited number of participants and require preregistration. It is advisable to communicate your interest early.

Fiction Among Friends organizes and hosts events that offer writers instruction, inspiration, support, encouragement and the chance to network with others. They are open to all experience levels.

The Fiction Among Friends events include both short workshops and longer multi-session workshops in a retreat setting. All are interactive; at the retreats, writers use extended blocks of time to make strides with works-in-progress and join in sessions to share their work with peers and the writer-in-residence for valuable feedback.

In 2009 Fiction Among Friends began a cooperative effort with Debbie Swan, owner of Willows Bistro and gallery, to offer readings by area writers of prose and poetry. Over the enusing years, this program has presented readings by over seventy published and unpublished writers. In 2011 we were invited to collaborate with the Adirondack Center for Writing in its "Open Mic" series.

In 2010, our relationship expanded to include workshops taught at Willows Bistro. READ MORE.
