We’ll meet to discuss original work, favorite pieces, and do some creative writing exercises. We’ll also look into self publishing and performing stories for the TV-deadened public. All experience and ability levels are welcome. Through constructive criticism and mutual support we can all get better, no matter where we’re starting.

Newburgh Library Photography Club
