Volunteer to write a book!

I joined Writers Anonymous meetup group about two years ago, and I did it because I like to write and I was looking for similar-minded people to share my interest with. I was so lucky to join one of the most exciting groups I’ve ever been a member of! Besides reading each other’s work, we have been encouraging each other to write and discuss our experiences. Our latest project is Seven Word Memoir Book, which we will be self-publishing very soon. No matter if  I felt sad or happy, I would always come to our meetings on Tuesdays in Beacon Hill and have a chat with people, who bring joy into my life. You have an opportunity to meet these great people. See our formal Invitation to the event on Tuesday, Dec 7 at 7Pm at Beacon Hill Pub:

Dear Friends,

Writers Anonymous Boston is finally breaking out from the underground! It’s been a year since we started our Seven-Word Memoir Book project, a creative process of collecting our life experiences, profound and witty insights captured in seven words.

We are hosting a Seven-Word Memoir Party and Fundraiser to support and promote the publication of our first book, Writers Anonymous Boston: Seven at The Sevens. Hemingway said, “All good books have one thing in common – they are truer than if they had really happened.” While writing seven-word memoirs, we let our imaginations get the best of us.

Come get a sneak peek at the book and take a shot at writing your own seven-word memoir to be included in the book! Win great prizes in our raffle and show off your trivia prowess during our literature quiz. Hang out with a group of people who share a passion for writing.

Tickets/suggested donation is $10-$20. Snacks will be provided. Space is limited so please reserve early. To buy tickets, visit: http://sevenwordmemoir.eventbrite.com.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to support your local writers!
