Writer’s on the Edge Hosts it’s 15th Anniversary Celebration December 10th at the Newport Visual Arts Center. The Party begins at 7 pm in the second floor meeting room at 777 NW Beach Drive (across from the Nye Beach Turnaround). Admission is FREE.
There will be live music with Donny King and The Edge Band but in the interest of no one going over “the edge,” only light refreshments will be offered.
Writers on the Edge welcomes local writers, and those who support them, to a celebration marking the organization’s fifteenth anniversary. The Nye Beach Writers Series of Writers on the Edge is completing its fifteenth year of offering a monthly event featuring a writer presenting work and discussing the writing process.
In these fifteen years, more than 326 authors have read at 170 sponsored events! In the coming year the organization looks forward to a writing workshop for middle school students, Story Circles for local writers during the winter months, the Northwest Poets’ Concord (a gathering of 100 poets at the Hallmark Inn in Newport, May 4-6, 2012), and a series of three workshops for adults during the summer of 2012.
