Sierra Writers will host an Open Read on Wednesday, December 14th at 6:30 p.m. in the Madelyn Helling Library, Community Room.

All are welcome to submit their works of fiction, nonfiction, or poetry for feedback from the assembled group. If you wish to have your work treated, please respect the following guidelines: limit your submittal to 750 words (2-3 pages double spaced) and use Times New Roman 12 point font or similar; limit one prose piece per person, or three short poems; piece will be read blind–please do not include your name on the work.

Submitted writing will be read aloud by other members of the group, who will provide considerate, brief and tactful feedback. The author must be present at the reading, and may choose to identify themselves after the comments are given.

Please join us for this constructive and engaging process. This reading is free to the public.
