Writers are invited to join the new North Shore Writers Group that is being launched April 5 in Deerfield.


The group will hold an organizing meeting on Saturday, April 5, 10 a.m. at the Deerfield Public Library, 920 Waukegan Road, to access interest in forming such a group.


If there is sufficient interest, NSWG will meet on a permanent basis on the first Saturday of each month at the Deerfield Public Library.


Organizing coordinator Ed Collins said membership is open to those interested in writing fiction or non-fiction. No dues are required, and there are no restrictions on age, ability or local residence.  


The Group will critique member manuscripts in progress in a helpful way, listen and learn from techniques presented by established authors, and offer brief writing prompts to stimulate creative thought and increase writing speed.


“We seek those who enjoy the craft of writing good English prose,” Collins indicates.  


If you plan to participate in the Saturday, April 5 Organizing Meeting contact Collins to reserve seating via email immediately at < ejcollins2@gmail.com >.

First critique: I think you mean assess, not access.
