Writing Workshops

Writers by the Bay workshop

Looking for a writers' group? All writers and would-be writers are welcome to come for critique & camaraderie. Led by Peter Abresch. [Books by Abresch in our library catalog]. Several well-published authors participate in this group.

The group meets at 7:00pm on the first Tuesday of every month at Calvert Library Prince Frederick.


This monthly workshop is led by author and editor, Elisavietta Ritchie, who has led many writers to publication. Everyone from budding authors to family historians has something to remember.  Now may be the time to document memories for your children to pass along.  You can publish your best work on the Library’s Creative Memoirs blog. Bring your piece of memoir, word count of 500-800 words, 12 copies double-spaced to work on and share with the group.  You will be encouraged to write during the workshop so bring your writing implements of choice.

Ms. Ritchie will inspire you along the writer’s way.  For more information, call Robyn Truslow at 410-535-0291 or 301-855-1862.
