In addition to this literary review, 
the writers group also has monthly sessions -- held every first Monday of the month, excepting holidays. These include discussions on good grammar and punctuation, the technical aspects of writing, what editors look for, and the critiquing of members' stories. We meet in the Community Center, Manzanita Room, from 2 to 4 p.m.

In the few years we have spent together, we writers have helped one another hone each others' skills, producing stories and poetry that is well written from both technical and aesthetic standpoints. Most importantly, we have a good time and feel that we are making a genuine contribution to the art of writing. Although many of us have been writing since youth, nevertheless, it is a joy to witness the improvement in writing skills that many of us have made. And the story content is wonderful, too, drawing from our varied life experiences.If you are interested in joining our group (or, simply visiting), please contact me, Lew Istre, at
