**NEW TIME** Starting in July, meetings will now be held from 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m.

Many of us these days are coming back to writing seriously after gaps of many years, or are attempting to fit our writing into the spaces left by full-time jobs, family commitments, and the general busyness of daily life. How do you carve out the focused time to develop and hone your writing skills? How do you even find the story that you want to tell?

Join us on Wednesday, July 19th at 7:00 p.m. at the Maryland Hall to hear National Book Award finalist Ellen Prentiss Campbell discuss making art when there are more reasons to stop than to keep going. She’ll discuss her path to successful publication as she navigated through job and family.EllenCampbell-Headshots-0032
