Rehoboth Beach Writers Guild Free Writes
The Rehoboth Beach Writers Guild is founded on the belief that the writing–and sharing–of our stories matters. We are enormously proud of our many published writers, but publication isn’t our ultimate goal. What matters is the telling of the story, whether that happens while sitting around a table at a Free Write, standing before an audience at one of our monthly readings, sharing drafts of one’s writing in a workshop– or publishing. Regardless of a writer’s genre or skill level, the Rehoboth Beach Writers’ Guild offers education, encouragement and above all, a nurturing community of people who care about–and value–words.
– Maribeth Fischer, Founder and Executive Director
Free Writes! is the name given to an informal gathering of writers of ALL skill levels who meet to practice their writing in a friendly and nurturing atmosphere. The goal of the Free Writes! is to provide a place and an opportunity for people to have fun with their writing, to explore different genres, and to do this in the company of other writing enthusiasts. Each Free Write! is facilitated by a Rehoboth Beach Writers Guild member who has experience in teaching, writing and/or leading such groups. Participants write prose, songs, poetry and fiction, work on novels during free writes, start short stories. Writing Prompts are often (but not always) designed to focus on a particular aspect of writing: the use of sensory details, the necessity of strong verbs, the craft of writing dialogue.
Free Writes group meets in the Upstairs Meeting Room and enter through the back door.
