Writers from Deep Water Pearls, a newly published collection, will be the featured readers at the PEI Writers’ Guild open mic on Thursday, March 14th at Receiver Coffee Co., 128 Richmond St., in Charlottetown at 7pm.
Guided by memoir coach and editor Kathleen Hamilton, these women writers have revealed the most intimate turning points in their lives, memories deeply charged with meaning, moments after which their lives were never the same.
What unites these intimate stories (and a few poems) is the shared commitment of the writers to explore their deeper truths. Their courage to write through barriers of silence, secrets and shame will connect powerfully with the audience.
All are welcome to this free event. The first ten writers to sign up may read from their work— poetry or prose—for up to 5 minutes. Following a short break, the featured women from Deep Water Pearls will begin their readings.
The PEI Writers’ Guild open mic series will continue to run on the second Thursday of each month.
