Sierra Writers hosts free public manuscript reading

Sierra Writers is sponsoring its semi-annual manuscript read on at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Madelyn Helling Library community room. Participants are welcome to come with a work of fiction, nonfiction or poetry to be read by the Sierra Writers Board, then critiqued by fellow writers.

All works are to be submitted anonymously. The “read” is open to the public.

Only one written work in any form – story, poem, prose, memoir, essay or excerpt – two-to-three pages, may be submitted per person. At the top of the entry, note whether the work is fiction or nonfiction and do not include the author’s name. Entries must be typed, double-spaced, single-sided and printed in an easy-to-read font, size 12 point. Word limit for an article or short story is 500 words. Word limit for a nonfiction book or a novel is 750 words. All entries should be the beginning pages of the work.



The author of any piece must be present. Attendees are asked to be considerate in their feedback and to keep comments brief and tactful.

The Sierra Writers’ reading begins at 6:30 p.m. (no general meeting). Members and visitors are welcome. There is no charge. The library is located at 980 Helling Way, next to the Rood Administration Center off of Route 49.




Sierra Writers meets the second Wednesday of each month. Sierra Writers provides a venue for working writers of all types to meet and learn about each other’s work and share experience and expertise.
