Library's First-Ever 'Night Writers' Workshop' Is a 'Go' Tuesday, Despite Cold Weather

The first meeting will be unique.

The Geneva Public Library invites you to the first meeting of the Night Writers' Workshop from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28.

The first meeting will be unique.

Geneva Library has invited local writing group facilitators to band together to help writers find writing group(s).

“Finding the right writing group involves many factors including schedule, location and timing. It involves introspection on your stage in your writing adventure, what projects you have going and skills on which you are working,” says Kimberly Gotches, public relations and adult program associate at Geneva Public Library District.

During the first 30-40 minutes of this meeting, each facilitator will have five minutes to discuss his/her writing group. Among other facilitators, Rick Holinger will speak about the new group he will lead at Geneva and his current group at the St Charles Library.

Geneva Library is planning to videotape this part of the program to offer as a resource to share with people looking for a writing group after this meeting.

The rest of the meeting will include time for a Meet and Greet and further discussion regarding the Night Writers Workshop.

“Writing can be a lonely craft at times. Finding a support network that is right for you is critical,” Kimberly states.

It is expected to be very cold on Tuesday. If the library is closed, this meeting will be canceled and rescheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 25, at the same time, but the meeting is scheduled to go forward as of 1:45 p.m. Tuesday.  If you think there could be a possibility the library has closed due to the weather, please call ahead or check for closure information at www.gpld.org. Email Kimberly at kgotches@gpld.org for more information. The Geneva Public Library District is located at 127 James Street.
