Join us for Sierra Writers Open Read!

Sierra Writers will host a free Open Read on Wednesday, March 13 at 6:30 p.m. 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, 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.  Author must be present.

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 563-6273.
