Writers’ Café back at new venue


A program aimed at boosting budding writers will be back with a new day and venue.

  The Writers’ Café is relaunching at the Oxford branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) at 522 Peel St. in Woodstock after a summer break. The program, presented jointly with Operation Sharing, will resume Wednesday, Sept. 12 from 10 a.m. to noon. It will run weekly at this time.
  The program ran previously at College Avenue United Church on Mondays but the new CMHA venue will be more accessible and central to some of the people it hopes to serve, said Eric Schmiedl, Operation Sharing’s Director of Print Media and Writers’ Café Coordinator. The program also runs in conjunction with Operation Sharing’s Extended Family Project, which links volunteers with people in need.
  “The program is open not only to the Operation Sharing and CMHA families but to the broader public as well,” Schmiedl said.

  The Writers’ Café focuses on various aspects related to writing, including the following:

·         Facilitating writing on the computer (including computer literacy)
·         Teaching English and English as a second language
• Creative writing (this could include short stories, poems or books)
·       • Résumes and cover letters
·       • Writing stories for Operation Sharing’s newsletter, Helping in Unity, and the Oxford Self Help

  The program is free and will be open to all ages.

The Writers’ Café appeals to job seekers, budding writers and those who wish to socialize with other like-minded people. Those interested in this program can call Operation Sharing at 519-539-3361 or the CMHA at 519-539-8055 for more information.
