NEWFANE—Local author and educator Deborah Lee Luskin will lead two sessions of a popular writing circle to benefit Moore Free Library. Participants will meet via Zoom on Friday, Dec. 31, and in person at the library on Sunday, Jan. 2. Both circles will meet from 1 to 3 p.m.
Luskin is an author, blogger, and educator with nearly 40 years of experience teaching students from all walks of life, including inmates, health care workers, children, college students, adults, and elders. She facilitates the Rosefire Writing Circle on Mondays (remotely) and Fridays (in person) throughout the year.
Writers of all kinds and all levels of experience are invited to reflect on the light in their life in a supportive writing circle.
“We will write to illuminate our inner light, honor our inner voice, and tell whatever stories rise to be told,” Luskin said in a news release. “Prompts and guidance for automatic writing will be provided. Collectively, we will create a safe space for those who wish to read their new words.”
Advance registration at www.deborahleeluskin.com/contact is required to receive the Zoom link for the Dec. 31 remote circle and to secure a seat for the Jan. 2 circle, where numbers will be limited, masks required, and indoor social distancing observed. Be sure to indicate which writing circle you plan to attend.
The writing circle is free; donations to Moore Free Library are gratefully accepted at moorefreelibrary.org or by mail at 23 West St., Newfane, VT 05345.
Moore Free Library has two tablets and two laptops available for workshop participants to borrow on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact the library directly to pick up equipment during regular library hours. The library has high speed Internet and is open on Friday afternoon.
