*Straw Dog Writers Guild is thrilled to announce our new partnership with Forbes Library. Beginning in April, Forbes Library became the official home of Writers Night Out, meeting upstairs in the Coolidge Room. On the first Tuesday of every month, we will offer the same opportunity for writers to share five minutes of their work during Open Mic, followed by a presentation by a recently published Featured Reader. We needed to alter our meeting time to coincide with the Forbes Library. We will begin at 6 and end at 8PM.

Forbes Library is truly a supportive partner for writers. Many of us have made use of their resources for research and pleasure, found a quiet nook to write in, or joined with the Writing Room on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Now we can add Writers Night Out to the generous support of our beloved community library. Thank you, Forbes!”
