Pamlico Writers Group – Fourth Tuesday Format Change


Pamlico Writers Group is trying a new format the fourth Tuesday of selected months. We’ll be offering mini-workshops with speakers giving instruction on topics of interest to writers.  Each workshop will consume approximately an hour and leave time for normal business and allow a few critiques.

This Tuesday, July 26,m 2016 will be our first mini-workshop with Doris Schneider.

Her topic will be “Book Reviews”: writing them for others, getting others to write them for you, how to use them, their significance in marketing your book, and reviews through professional companies or not. Come out and join us.

  • When:             Tuesday, 26 July 2016

  • Time:               7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

  • Location:        The Turnage Theater, 150 W. Main St., Washington, NC 27889

Doris SchneiderDoris was the original spark for our annual conference and has chaired the Conference Steering Committee for the past five years.

She was born in Rosenburg, Texas, but moved all over the United States and Canada as a child. She moved to North Carolina in 1971 where she has spent most of her adult life.

She taught Theatre Arts at William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and at North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina. She has written numerous articles for professional journals, a theater textbook (The Art and Craft of Stage Management), and two novels (Borrowed Things and By Way of Water). She is currently working on another novel, The Little Drummer Girl, and a collection of short stories.

Doris is one of five artist/owners of the Lemonade Art Gallery in Washington where she displays her masks and jewelry.

Our Critique Groups meet year-round, the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7pm, at the Turnage Theater in downtown Washington, NC. Our meetings begin with a brief session of the General Critique Group, from there we separate into various genre sessions as attendance permits.
