For All Writers



"Free" Event at Braintree’s Thayer Library


    Don’t know how to start your writing project?  Have you already started but it’s not working out the way you want?  Have you finished a final draft but can’t find an agent or publisher?  Or wondering how to market your published work? Would you like advice and support from experienced writers?  Or simply chat with others who share your interests, frustrations, obstacles, and successes?

Time and Place:  Saturday, September 29th,  from 11 am to 2 pm, Authors Without Borders is partnering with the Thayer Public Library to hold a free, public Meet & Greet— for writers who are published, unpublished, aspiring, or just interested in learning more.  The library is located at 798 Washington St., Braintree, MA 02184.

    Authors Without Borders began in 2007 as a regional consortium of four authors who came together to market their books and assist other writers in the difficulties of writing and navigating the rocky road to publication and beyond. 

    Founding members include published authors Pat Perry of Fairhaven, MA (fantasy), Willie Pleasants of Dorchester (poetry and short stories), Alberta Sequeira of North Dartmouth, MA (memoirs and Narrative Non-Fiction), Joyce Keller Walsh of Lakeville, MA (mysteries and plays).

    AWB does workshops, presentations, produce and hosts the NBTV-95 Cable T.V. show in New Bedford titled, “Authors Without Borders Presents.”  The group interviews writers, artist, and publishers.  AWB also has an Associate Members program which includes writers with a diversity of interests.
