Panhandle Writers celebrate 10 years and is coming to Milton

Published on September 23, 2013 with No Comments

Panhandle Writers Group held its 10th anniversary celebration on Aug. 30. The group’s purpose is to encourage, critique, and advise writers. Rick Ready spoke to the twenty-four attending on writing and gave his five overused words: so, that, then, just, and really. More than likely those words can be removed without affecting your story. Lloyd Albritton shared his insights regarding books listed on Amazon.

August 2003 marked the beginning of the Panhandle Writers Group, formerly known as Santa Rosa Literary Society, under the direction of Fred Pitts. Myra Shofner, Rick Ready, Sharon Glass, Sylvia Melvin, among others, have led the group and have taught the craft of writing.

Members can read their selection and be critiqued on punctuation, content, or character development. Several current members have published books via hard copy or via the e-book and are willing to share their experiences.

In October, the Panhandle Writers Group will begin meeting at the Milton Community Center, 5629 Byrom St., Thursdays from 6 -8 p.m. We invite all interested to attend. If you have something written you would like to read, please bring it with you.
