For the past 10 years, a group of writers has been meeting 2 Sundays a month around the big table at 2801/2 Washington Ave., Kingston, home of Steve Clorfeine and Jenny Bates. We work with prompts and thematic exercises, spending most of our time writing together.  Often, as a beginning, Jenny improvises on the piano and the group writes freely or with a prompt.  Steve makes homemade chai and the conversation ranges around aspects of writing, not writing, reading, and telling stories. For some years, Steve has been encouraging a reading, and when Tara joined in for several sessions, we suddenly had a venue at The Rail Trail Cafe. In celebration of our first group reading, we’ve published an Anthology of our work entitled ‘Open House,’ which will be launched on June 30 at the Cafe.
