Horace Greeley Writers’ Symposium

October 22, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Looking for a fun-filled inspiring day in the fall… register soon for the 14th annual Horace Greeley Writers’ Symposium being held in the United Baptist Church, On The Green, in East Poultney, Vermont from 9-5 pm.

Fools walking in will have you on the edge of your seat as you listen to David Elliott, author of picture books and novels for young people, including NY Times best selling “And Here’s to You.”

You can also learn how to write the personal essay for blogs, newspapers and magazines.  Hope Ferguson will have everyone writing!

Further, discover if you are successful yet with Jean Yeager who will speak about how to promote and format your book. Did you think writing was just, well, writing?!

Ekphrastic Poetry is also on the agenda with David Mook asking the question..”Have you ever experienced writer’s block?”

A short history lesson on Greeley will also be presented by Linda Knowlton, President of the Greeley Foundation and owner of the Greeley House n East Poultney!

To register for the Symposium,  go to the website at www.thegreeleyfoundation.org or call  for a brochure at 802-287-2577.  Brochures are also available at the Poultney library and other businesses in Poultney and surrounding towns.
