We had a full house of writers for last night for another incredible evening of Writers for Recovery. It featured special guest Ellen Lesser, author and teacher extraordinaire from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
Ellen talked about the nature of writing in her life, and how she has used it as a tool of recovery since her childhood. Then she knocked our socks off with a reading from one of her recent short stories and responded generously to questions from the group.
We finished the night with a writing prompt, writing for seven minutes on the topic "What I Have Recovered." You are welcome to do this too, and send your response to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion on this blog.
Finally, we made the decision that even though our ten weeks are up, we aren't ready to stop! We won't meet next Wednesday, August 27. But we will be back on September 3, and will keep the group going until further notice. So please, come join us!
