Tales From the Lake

Friday, October 18, 2019 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake


The Arts on the Lake Writers Group presents their “Annual Read” on Friday October 18th at 7pm. Come for an evening of poetry; prose; memoir; fiction, fun and refreshments!

Join us as Tail Feather paddles on a river that flows two ways and a love letter is written to Summer’s abundance. From AmeriCorps memories of kids covered with homeopathic repellant to the pitter patter of paws on hardwood floors and rains’ frenzy zapping your ears. From the turf fire in the hearth glowing bright as old Ned recounts echos of ages past to the cosmic dust swept by birds’ little stick feet. Hilarious episodes from six decades of mammograms to human legs askew in the grass of an accident scene and space zombies in a suffering fog swinging themselves across a creek like Tarzan!

Formed in 2012, Lake Writers meets monthly for a round table of sharing/critique of novels, short stories, memoir, non-fiction, and poetry in a friendly, supportive setting. The group leader is Tom Kersting, a published writer who has forty years of experience teaching writing in area high schools and colleges.


The group usually meets the first Wednesday of the month at Arts on the Lake. There is currently a waiting list to join Lake Writers. Email for more information.
