The success of last year's Marble Fiction Project, as well as frequent requests, has inspired us to once again put a call out to all aspiring writers to set pen to paper! This year's prompt, Letters to..., is a foray into the world of epistolary novels. This style of fiction first gained popularity in the 17th and 18th centuries, and is a form in which most or all of the plot is advanced by the letters or journal entries of one or more characters.
Please join us at the information session to pick up your notebook.
Some examples of epistolary novels are:

A ceili (kay-lee) is a traditional Irish gathering for fun, fellowship, and laughs (or craic as the Irish might say). Traditional ceili dances were enjoyed at house parties and corner road gatherings in the rural countrysides. Decades later, they are still danced in Ireland. The bonfire, haymakers jig, siege of ennis, fairy reel, etc. are very easy to learn. These traditional country folk dances have a follow- the-leader pattern that new dancers can pickup on their first attempt so come and join us for an evening of fun!
