Are you a writer -- or an aspiring writer -- looking for some support? The new Tewksbury Writing Group, which meets the third Tuesday evening of every month, is open to everyone who's interested in writing -- all genres, all skill levels. Each meeting -- which will take place via Zoom -- consists of some conversation, followed by a guest speaker (typically a published author) offering some tips of the trade, followed by a period of reading & friendly critiquing via breakout sessions. (In the breakout sessions, authors of like genres will be grouped together.) 

This month's guest speaker is Ursula Wong. Ursula is a retired engineer who writes gripping stories about strong women who battle impossible odds to achieve their dreams. Her debut novel, Purple Trees, is a frank portrayal of a woman in rural New England striving for normalcy despite a terrible and hidden past. Her Amber War series of historical fiction chronicles the tenuous relationship between Russia and her neighbors since the Soviet occupation of Lithuania during WWII. An adventurous traveler, scuba diver, and hiker, Ursula has been all over the world, and in retirement, continues to travel with her husband. She also volunteers for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell. Learn more about Ursula HERE.

The group is facilitated by author Dale T. Phillips, who has published novels, story collections, non-fiction, and over 70 short stories. Stephen King was Dale's college writing teacher, and since then, Dale has found time to appear on stage, television, radio, in an independent feature film, and compete on Jeopardy (losing in a spectacular fashion). He's a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the Sisters in Crime.
