Amusing the Muse: An Adult Book Club for Aspiring Writers
Fall/Winter 2018 (Session) at The Danbury Public Library
Class Meets September 13th & 27th, 2018 at 5:00 PM, Plus Additional Thursday Evenings
Are you an aspiring writer looking for your muse? Come join a lively group of fellow writers who meet at the Library for dedicated writing practice and reading inspiration. We will be reading from Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic. We are also students of esteemed writing-teacher Natalie Goldberg. This friendly group of writers will inspire you on your writing journey.
We aim to find our authentic voices; delve into descriptive bliss and the tingling magic of "being there" as we deepen our "practice." For us, writing means getting to the marrow of human experience, weaving loyalty and sharing in the unbridled joy of when our muse emerges.
The Danbury Public Library is pleased to offer Kindles with a copy of Gilbert’s Big Magic available to members of this writers’ group. Please check out your device in the Technology Center. Please mention to the Technology staff that you are a member of “Amusing the Muse: An Adult Book Club for Aspiring Writers.”
This group meets in the Library's Technology Center Conference Room. The Danbury Public Library also has a café on-site.
