Writers Circle

Our Arts Council Writers Circle has established a leadership team following the retirement of Mary McMillan. A group of four local writers, Lourdes Thuesen, Casey Carney, K.C. Patrick and R.V, Schmidt will share the year in quarters.

The host for the first three months will be Lourdes Thuesen. Lourdes is a fourth generation San Franciscan and has taught in middle schools and high schools throughout California as well as spending eleven years working with the indigenous Aymara people in the Peruvian Andes. She has always written poetry and her work has been published in anthologies and the Lunar Calendar (The Luna Press, Boston). With more available time in retirement, she has enjoyed the writing community around our lake and is presently finishing a novel. Lourdes took the helm on January 7th in the Main Street Gallery.


Writers Circles are held on the first Thursday of each month at the Main Street Gallery, 6:00 to 8:30. We hope to see all the loyal writers and welcome new faces. Bring something and share it if you like or just come in and listen.
