THIS LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING NEW FOR OUR MOUNTAIN AREA WRITERS

Mountain Perk in Hiawassee, Georgia, will host writers on the second Friday of each month beginning on April 9. Glenda Beall is the first reader of this series.


It is also being called Writers' Night Out
Second Friday of each month
7:00-8:30 p.m. With local writers reading, followed by an open mic.

Mountain Perk Coffee House is located on Main Street in Hiawassee,Georgia (across from the Post Office)

I was asked to announce this, and I am happy to do so. I do not know as yet who is sponsoring this new event. It sounds like NCWN West, but I do not know if it is or not. "Writers Night Out" is a NCWN event. The important thing is that something new is happening in our neighborhood. Sounds like it will be a new forum for poets to read their poems and maybe sell their books.

To be put on the schedule as a featured reader, email Karen Paul Holmes at Kpaulholmes@gmail.com.

Hi Nancy,
I look forward to reading at Mountain Perk and I appreciate Karen Holmes organizing this event and asking me to read. Karen is an active member of NCWN West but she is also a part of the Georgia Writers association and she is having some fine writers from Georgia read in the coming months.
I'm excited that we have another writing event in our area. Before long we might have as many as they do in Raleigh.
