Are you interested in creative writing?  Do you want to be able to share your ideas and written works?  If so, you are cordially invited to join the French City Writers’ Guild at Bossard Memorial Library. The Writers’ Guild is an open forum writing group that enables you to share your works and meet others who share your passion for writing. Our goal is to provide a comfortable place for people to discuss their written works and receive constructive feedback from the members of the Guild. Creative writing exercises will be conducted at select meetings as well. Two different meetings will be held each month, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. The Tuesday sessions will be for all ages and friendly for a younger audience. Thursday evening sessions will be held for those 18 years of age and older, as works containing more mature content may be shared. Meetings will be held from 6:00 to 7:30 P.M. on their respective nights. Light refreshments will be provided. If you are interested in joining the Guild, please correspond to Randall Fulks at RFulks@bossardlibrary.org or (740) 446-7323 ext. 233 to register for the session(s) you would like to attend.     We hope to see you there!
