Relive The DPPL Writing Group Open Mic Showcase!

The DPPL Writing Group, which meets at 7:00 pm on Tuesdays, convened on December 5th to share excerpts of their work, including novels that were written as part of this year's NaNoWriMo, in an open mic setting. In total, ten local authors read in front of an attentive crowd of readers and fellow writers alike. However, if you missed being there in person, you're in luck - the entire event was captured for posterity and is now available to listen to anytime, either as a downloadable podcast at dppl.podomatic.com or as a YouTube video:

Thanks to all the very talented writers who participated in this event! For anyone interested in joining the Writing Group, the meeting on the first Tuesday of every month is open to newcomers. More information can be found here.
