around the Table, our blog for the series of writing classes held from March through October each year since 2010.
In the past four years we have been overjoyed with the quality of writers, teachers, poets and students who have come and shared the studio and sat around the table with like-minded people who appreciate the written word.
In the bookcases we have books to instruct, to inspire and others to enjoy reading. Students are invited to check out books and return them within a reasonable time.
Instructors who stay overnight in the studio apartment are invited to browse the bookshelves and enjoy a book while here. We also have a stack of writers' magazines to share - Writer, Writer's Digest and Poets and Writers.
Each season we try to bring back the most popular instructors, but we continue to invite new writers who can offer instruction our local writers and poets want.
During the winter months while we are closed I will be busy contacting writers and poets in western North Carolina and North Georgia including the Atlanta area to include on next year's schedule of classes.
Meantime, check back with us for guest posts and for articles and prompts that will keep you writing while you huddle inside by the fire. To see what is new for 2014, click on our Schedule page.
