MaryAnn Crawford, left, former professor of English and head of the interdisciplinary writing program at Central Michigan University, leads this group of local writers and aspiring writers in a friendly, supportive workshop series.
Meetings are held the first and third Saturdays of most months, with some holiday exceptions and, usually, summer months off. The Harrisville branch of the Alcona County Library hosts this group at 10:30 a.m. on meeting days.
Two of the participants have published books done with the help of this program. Others are still working on novels, short stories, poems and self-help books.
The price for this class is $25 for each six-week session. Prospective participants are welcome to drop in to a session free to test the waters. No sign-up is necessary.
