Middletown Springs author and writing coach hosts celebration of writing 

Saturday, May 6 at 5 p.m.—POULTNEY—Join Stone Valley Arts at 5pm on Saturday, May 6, for a celebration of writing and writers.

For eight weeks in February and March, Middletown Springs author and writing coach Herb Childress led a group of 13 local writers through the process of creating a short story. From creating a setting into learning a character and her or his troubles, and following through questions of craft and voice, each of these writers has created a short story that offers its own window into lives unseen.

Actors from the Theater in the Woods company will perform excerpts from each story, interspersed with author conversations about their choices and their inspirations. The course anthology, containing all thirteen stories plus one from Childress as well, will be available for purchase at $15. Admission, refreshments and conversation will all be free.

Stone Valley Arts is located at 145 E. Main St. in Poultney.
