If you were jealous of the teens and tweens in the Southborough Library’s Creative Writing Club, you’ll want to sign up for the Library’s newest program “Write Now!”.

The Library is now sponsoring a creative writing program for adults ages 18+. No creative writing experience is necessary, “all you’ll need is a willingness to write down and share your stories”.

Write Now flyerThe program will be facilitated by a retired English and creative writing teacher, Janet Karman*. She hopes to develop an ongoing, dedicated community of writers who can practice writing in their chosen genres and also try out other genres that interest them.

Karman shared:

Experienced writers, as well as those just sticking their toes in the water for the first time, can often use constructive feedback in a supportive environment. I hope to provide that space as well as provide inspiration for motivated individuals to take risks in writing and find their authentic voices.

The free meetings will be held every other week. Since the program will be held in evenings (after the Library’s current closing hours), it will start out over zoom. Eventually, Karman hopes to be able to hold in-person meet-ups.

Registration is open now until July 6th for the first meeting which will be held on Thursday, July 15 at 7:00 pm. To sign up, click here.

*Workshop leader Janet Davis Karman is a retired English teacher who taught literature, creative writing, and journalism for 16 years in Wayland and Newton. She has participated in and led creative writing workshops and has helped numerous writers prepare their work for publication.
