For many years, a group of writers have met at the library on a monthly basis to hone their craft and find support among like-minded individuals. The group is capably guided by local writer Ali MacDonald. While there is a core group of 8 or so, there are also some members who, due to distance or circumstances, cannot participate in person. Those folks keep in touch via email and conversation. One such member, Emery, hosted the group in his home over the holidays. It never ceases to amaze me the profound friendships, based on trust and respect, that have developed between these one-time total strangers.
