"Writers on Writing" - An Interactive Cape Cod Authors' Panel

January 16th at Sandwich Public Library

The Sandwich Arts Alliance proudly hosts “Writers on Writing”, an event featuring a panel of experienced local authors from different genres providing the audience with helpful information on writing. The event takes place at the Sandwich Public Library (Room 2) on Wednesday, January 16th from 6 to 7:30 pm. Tickets are $5 in advance or $10 at the door.

The authors on the panel, all Cape Cod residents and members of the Sandwich Arts Alliance, are Bill Burbank: Fiction, Karen Goershel: Playwriting, Carolyn Lecomte: Fiction and Christie Lowrance: Non-Fiction.           

Passionate about their craft and happy to share interesting and sometimes differing perspectives on writing, panel members will ask questions of their fellow panel members, thus learning about genres in which they are unfamiliar. In the process they will share personal stories that may resonate with audience members.  

Some authors shared, “I didn’t know she (a character in her book) was going to do that!  I was so excited and surprised” and “Before I die, I want to write the perfect sentence.”

During the event there will be a question and answer period in which writers in the audience, both aspiring and experienced, will have the opportunity to gain new resources, share personal experiences, and network with other writers.

According to Karen Santos, Sandwich Arts Alliance Executive Director, “This isn’t a lecture. The event will be moderated by a lively emcee, June Bowser-Barrett, who will moderate the interaction between the panel members themselves and between panel members and audience attendees”.

“Writers on Writing” supports the Sandwich Arts Alliance’s mission of cultivating and enriching our creative community.
