Writers’ Night Out, takes place at the Union CountyCommunity Center in Blairsville, GA on Friday evening.
A real treat this Friday night is having national award-winning poet Scott Owens join us from Hickory, NC. His readings never disappoint. We're also lucky to have our own Glenda Beall entertain us with her delightful poetry and stories.
Dinner or refreshment is available at The View Grill next door to the ballroom. The food is reasonably priced and yummy, but please allow lots of time to be served. Arrive by 6 pm or before, if possible. There's a deck with a fabulous view of the golf course and mountains. You can also bring food/drink into the ballroom from the grill.
Optional dinner at The View Grill: 6 pm or earlier
Gather in ballroom: 7 pm
Featured reade:r 7:15, followed by open mic
Scott will also teach one of his terrific poetry workshops at Writers Circle on Saturday. For more information, see http://glendacouncilbeall.blogspot.com/
Attached is a WNO flyer for you to post -- please take one to your church, library, college, etc. if possible. I appreciate any and all efforts to get the word out. Please forward this email too if you have friends who might enjoy this fun evening.
