Upcoming Events With the ESWA

“What will you write about today?”
Free and open to the public, the Writer’s Association hosts monthly meetings (excluding July and August), on the second Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Two additional workshops are included this spring. The meetings rotate between locations around the Delmarva Peninsula, as a convenience to members and public alike. Informal in atmosphere, the programs cover topics of interest and value to writers and general public, as well as public readings. Topics are presented by professionals in the business, including published authors, magazine editors, key political figures, local entertainers, and television and radio personalities. An optional lunch follows the presentations, allowing time for networking among writers, speakers, and guests.

A nationally-known literary treasure, Ms. Thompson is the author of four books of poetry. Two of her collections, The Leaving and The Golden Hour, were nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

“It’s at the end of a poem where the magic happens,” says Ms. Thompson. “It can be a surprise leap to another level or a quiet affirmation.” The Poetry Workshop will be held in the church hall at 111 S. Harrison St. on the southern edge of Easton village.
