Explore the craft of writing
BRATTLEBORO- Dartmouth writing instructor Julie Kalish will lead an interactive exploration of the craft of writing at Brooks Memorial Library, 50 Main Street, on Wednesday, January 2, at 7 pm. Her talk, “Finding Your Voice in 2019,” is part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series and is free and open to the public.
Kalish’s talk is for anyone with New Year’s resolutions to write or those just wanting to write more clearly and deliberately. She will explore with the audience the principles of context, audience, tone, purpose, and message.

The next Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture at Brooks Memorial Library will be “The Making of Let Us Now Praise Famous Men” on February 6, at 7 pm.
