Working on The Write Moves

Photography by Paparazzi Paul.

With anticipation of the discoveries to be made in the literary world, a small group of established and aspiring writers met at The Origins Gallery in Stroudsburg, PA on Thursday July 7th in order to partake of a class titled, “Everything You Need To Know about Writing and Publishing” which was led by Vincent Asaro. A gentle relaxed atmosphere embodied the session as snacks and casual conversation lent their laid back ambiance to the gathering. It was after a time did Mr. Asaro share his instructive insights on the art and process of writing along with the challenges and procedures of publishing one's work.

The experience of learning something new and reassuring proved to be as enjoyable as it was informative. A great number of related topics were explored throughout the session which inspired those present to embark upon and/or resume their literary adventures. It was a fun time and the class ended with a communal certainty that many enjoyable reads will follow. You can view photographs taken during the class in The Working on The Write Moves Gallery at
