Event Description

The Writers’ Circle is a free program presented by the Arts Council of Greater New Haven designed to support writers by connecting them to experienced experts. The panel discussion style meetings take place once a month at the Arts Council (70 Audubon Street, 2 FL, New Haven). The first session of the fall season will be How to Break Into Freelance on November 18 at 5:30p.m. The featured panelist will be Connecticut writers Daisy Abreu, Jocelyn Ruggerio and Lucy Gellman. Learn the pros and cons of freelancing from active freelancers in our community. This is a great opportunity for writers searching for publishing tips or even just a place to share work, ask questions and meet other local writers. A post discussion social will take place at Koffee on Audubon following the event. Learn more about the panelist below.
