LAKEPORT, Calif. – The free monthly writing workshop in Lakeport, called Writers Circle, is held at the Main Street Art Gallery, 325 N. Main St., at 6:30 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month.
The Lake County Arts Council sponsors the workshop, and former Lake County Poet Laureate Mary McMillan facilitates it.
The group received a grant from Poets and Writers Inc., through a grant it has received from the James Irvine Foundation, for 2012.
Many Lake County residents who are just starting to write memoirs, fiction, essays or poems come to the Writers Circle.
They join with more seasoned writers to get feedback on their work, build their skills and find new ideas.
From all over the county, residents aged 19 to 90 have benefited from the opportunity to listen to other writers and share their own work.
Some people come only one or two times, and others show up every month.
