The Writing Life: summer facilitated discussion series

Forbes Writer In Residence Susan Stinson facilitates a drop-in discussion of issues faced by writers who are working on long projects such as novels, collections of poetry and books of nonfiction. Anyone interested in such discussions is welcome.

The group meets from 7 to 8 downstairs in the Community Room,Forbes Library, 20 West Street, Northampton. The topic scheduled for Monday, July 18, is “Private explorations/public voice: process and presentation in writing.”

There will be refreshments and time to just hang out after the structured discussion. This is a great way to meet other writers.

Some of the questions we’ll consider:

What is the relationship between doing the work and ambition?
What is the relationship between doing the work and human connection?
What is the relationship between doing the work and money?
What is the relationship between sharing the work and ambition?
