Sierra Writers hosts open read

Sierra Writers will host a free Open Read at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Madelyn Helling Library Community Room.

This is an opportunity for writers of all ages and abilities to have their anonymously submitted story, poem, memoir, essay or excerpt read aloud by members of Sierra Writers, then receive brief, considerate, and supportive feedback from participants.

Entries must be 750 words or less (2-3 double-spaced pages, size 12 font). State whether piece is beginning, middle, end or entire piece (such as a poem). Do not include author’s name, but author must be present. All community writers are invited to participate.

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 the second Wednesday of every month at 980 Helling Way, Nevada City. For more information, log on to or call 205-5068.
