CALL FOR PRESENTERS AND WORKSHOP FACILITATORS FOR THE 2ND BIENNIAL INTO THE WORDS: AN LVW SUMMER WRITING RETREAT AND MEMBER SHOWCASE!
By Alyssa Berthiaume
Are you a member of LVW and would like to provide a presentation or workshop, reading, or other offering at this year’s Into the Words?
Next month marks our 2nd Biennial Into the Words: An LVW Summer Writing Retreat and Member Showcase to be hosted again by member, Jerry Johnson, in Irasburg, VT on July 22nd. In the earliest days of the League, programs for members were about gathering to share ideas and to spend time together. In 2015, a special subcommittee orchestrated this event to bring LVW back to “its roots.” Purposefully named “Into the Words” playing off the hit-musical and movie Into the Woods, the committee wanted to create that feeling of getting lost in the thing that you love (words) with people who share that adoration (writers).
Into the Words is a program that highlights the craft, skills and talents of our members. The public can attend, but all presentations, workshops, readings, and exhibits, are provided by members of LVW.
Mark your calendars and get prepared to let the muse lead you into the words: Join us on July 22nd. Attend a session, find a comfy place to write, meditate, think, or chat with friends old and new. The day is one for inspiring your creativity and surrounding yourself with others who share the same passion for writing.
And, if you are interested in provided an offering as a part of this program, please fill out the attached form and return to the Immediate Past President, Alyssa Berthiaume, at Alyssa.firstname.lastname@example.org by June 15th.
