April Meeting

Please join us on Saturday, April 20th at 12 pm – 2 pm at Bluewater Grill 1720 E. Camelback, Phoenix. Our speaker this month will be Sandra Marinella. We look forward to seeing you there.

Sandra Marinella, MA and MEd, is an award-winning writing teacher and author from Chandler, Arizona. She has taught thousands of students and presented hundreds of writing and story-sharing workshops. Her articles have appeared in The English Journal, The Arizona English Bulletin, Seventeen, Survivor’s Review, Well Being Journal, and Psychology Today’s blog.

When Sandra faced breast cancer, she turned to her personal writing to help with healing. The experience inspired her to teach writing to cancer patients and veterans. As she watched storytelling and writing help others transform their lives, she wrote her new book, The Story You Need to Tell. Her pioneering work shows us the power of finding our stories, sharing them, and writing our way out of darkness toward resilience and renewal. She speaks and teaches workshops at conferences and community venues across the country. You can learn more at www.storyyoutell.com and follow her at www.facebook.com/storyyouneedtotell.

Writer On Writers

Did you know, The Phoenix Writers Club hosts a writers workshop after each monthly meeting?

We call it, Write On Writers (WOW), and we would enjoy seeing you there. Write On Writers is an unscripted, open forum where we discuss the craft of writing, share our current works in progress, and offer suggestions and ideas about each other's works. It is not a critique group, more of an open platform to give and receive ideas to help sharpen our skills and write better works. The group is not limited to one or two types of writing, but to ALL writing regardless of the topic or target audience. We hope you will join us, and look forward to hearing from all writers.

Be a Writer

What’s Involved?
Got an urge to write, but don’t know how to begin?

First, say these words, I am a writer! Out loud, I AM A WRITER!

Now go tell everyone you know and even strangers that you are a writer.

Once your writing muse hears you, there’s no turning back you’re hooked.

So roll up your sleeves, sharpen some pencils or turn on the computer, your job is to make those words come true so start writing and keep it going! Ah, now that’s the hard part. Writing takes courage, perseverance, determination, discipline, creativity and boldness.

We are here to help. Writers need writers.

DON’T delete this Web site, bookmark it when your first book is published, you’ll be glad you did!
