There is no shortage of stressors these days, and if left unchecked, that stress can take a real toll on our health and well-being, both physical and mental. I find it funny that some people think writing is stressful, yet many find catharsis in writing. Whether writing a personal journal, or expressing your feelings in a poem or story, getting some of your anxieties and stress onto the printed page can help you acknowledge them and maybe help you deal with them. So in these days of high anxiety, keep writing. And if you have something you’d like to share with a friendly group of like-minded people, we have just the place.
The next THC Writers Group meeting will be Saturday, February 11th, at the Tamale Hut Café, starting at 2PM. If you can attend, we’d love to see you there. If you would like to submit a piece for critique during the meeting please send it to email@example.com, along with an idea of the level of feedback you are looking for, and I will distribute it to the group. If you have something you would like feedback on but you can’t attend the meeting, I’d be glad to forward it to the group as well. We can discuss it at the meeting and get some comments back to you via e-mail.
Hope to see you all on the 11th for the Writers Group, and on the 25th for the February Reading Series night.
For those of you attending, you should have already received the following pieces:
