PUBLICITY Event publicity for the Town of Thurman, NY
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.
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.
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. In its first two years, this program has presented
readings by over fifty published and unpublished writers. In 2011
we were invited to collaborate with the Adirondack Center for Writing
in its "Open Mic" series, resulting in our offering a
"Featured Reader" at our June, September, December and
our relationship expanded to include workshops taught at Willows
Fiction Among Friends writers' retreats and others at RetreatsForWriters.com
