The Writers Rendezvous this month welcomed several new members, and ran into extra time because we had so much to talk about. I’m going to start this update with events and contests that have upcoming deadlines, and leave the more general information for part two of the post.
First, the Bridgeport History Center at the Bridgeport Library will be holding its monthly memoir writing workshop with Brian Hoover (online, of course) this Saturday, February 20, from 10:30-12:00 pm. The class includes writing exercises, an exploration of the nature of memoirs, and feedback on voice and perspective. Register here.
