June 2023 Reading Night – Thursday 29th

Reading Night on Thursday evening, June 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Courtenay Library on 6th St.

We have gone to a no-theme Reading Night so feel free to bring any previous written poem or prose piece, or something you are working on to share with your fellow writers for up to 10 minutes. If there are less than 8 participants you can extend that to 15 minutes. We hope to see you there to celebrate your writing talents and listen to what other CVWS members are writing.

For those of you experiencing “writer’s block” or who need a little break from what you are working on or need some inspiration/motivation, here are some special days/ideas to consider …
