Writers’ workshop on goal-setting

On Wednesday, Sierra Writers will present KNCO radio personality and Toastmaster Jerri Glover as she kicks off the summer break with a lively presentation on “Self-Motivation and Goal-Setting for Writers.” Using examples and practice exercises, Glover’s 60-minute talk will cover the 10 habits of highly prolific writers as well as provide specific tips and strategies for reaching writing objectives and staying on track. Her talk begins at 6:30 p.m.

In addition to being an experienced toastmaster, Glover is the owner of Workshop Wrangler, a business event planning service, as well as the co-owner and inspiration behind Nevada County Makes (www.nevadacountymakes.com)--an online community and marketplace for artists, artisans, crafters and makers in Nevada County California.

Sierra Writers provides a venue for writers of all types to meet, share and learn, with a range of experience and expertise. Meetings are held at 6:30 on the second Wednesday of every month except July and August at the Madelyn Helling Library Community Room, offering at least six speakers or events per year. There are two “Open Reads” (usually in October and March) where anyone can submit a few pages anonymously to be read aloud and critiqued constructively. Membership is $25 per year ($10 for high school and college students). More information can be found at www.sierrawriters.org.
