Upcoming Event

A whisper of fall is in the air reminding us that the time is nearing for the Annual Reading Program of the Greensboro Writers' Guild. This year's event will be held at the Conference Center of Cuscowilla, in Eatonton, GA. The program's theme will be "Perspectives."

If you research the word perspective, you will find it comes from the Latin perspectus, which means to look through or to see clearly. In its archaic form the word means an optical as a telescope. It is our hope that as our 2010 audience peers through the telescope of the prose and poetry inked across the pages of our newest booklet, they will enjoy the various perspectives developed through our collective imaginations and presented through the remarkable and satisfying, shared art of writing.

The annual November 4th Reading Program of the Greensboro Writers' Guild was made even more special by a visit of the group's founder, Jane Hoover.

Jane read four selections of her poetry as part of the program. Mrs. Hoover and 19 other members of the Writers' Guild wowed a crowd of 57. The program was held in the upstairs banquet room of the Yesterday Cafe. Jane and her husband, Ron, now reside in Durham, North Carolina.

Each person attending the event received a complimentary copy of the group's Volume XI booklet entitled, "Portraits."

Great job, one and all,

The Greensboro Writers' Guild is excited about it's newest publication, Cooking Wild With Writers, Poets, and Friends. Centered exclusively around wild game and fish and hot off the press, look for it on the shelves of Lake Country shops in the very near future. Filled with stories and recipes from the writers, their families and friends from the community, across the country and the world, it is a long-awaited accomplishment.

The Greensboro Writers' Guild continues to grow and excell; 2009 was a year of happenings. What will 2010 bring?

Remember, if you can dream it; it can happen!
