What’s next for the Accokeek Women’s Writing Group?

IMG_5543Exciting changes for our local gathering of dedicated writers! We’re moving to a more collective structure, sharing more retreats, and continuing to build a diverse, passionate and supportive community!

The biggest shift is that we are sharing facilitation! Instead of one person running every meeting, each of us is stepping up to share our skills and passions, and lead the group.

We’ve put a new folder with instructions for leading a meeting, and sign up sheet for leaders, readers and mailing list. So if you want to step up, we’ve made it easy!

The best thing about this change is that each leader offers her strengths and passions, and we’re all learning so much in the process.

lsIf you haven’t joined us at the Accokeek Library, every second Monday of the month, from 1:15 to 3:15, come along! If you’re already a member, sign up to lead and read, and enjoy the new AWWG!




Some of our Writers are Artists, too….

…including yours truly, Webmaster Patrise Henkel.   I will have a painting in the Charles County Arts Alliance Fall Art Show, a multi-media public exhibit.

When: October 2 to December 30, 2014
Where: Waldorf West Library
10405 O’Donnell Place, Waldorf, MD

The Library consists of four separate gallery spaces on two floors, so it should be a large and varied exhibit. My painting student Neil (featured on my blog) will have 2 works in the show.

“Meet the Artists” Public Reception

Come and honor all the artists, check out the gallery, the library and enjoy refreshments.

Saturday, October 4
