Writers' Day is the region's most exciting writing conference, attracting bestselling authors, award winners, laureates, and more. In 2015, we welcome as our keynote speaker Anita Diamant, best-selling author of twelve books including The Red Tent. We have a ton of workshops and seminars led by an incredible line-up of professional writers, editors, agents, and publishers. The conference includes the option of face-to-face manuscript critiques and agent/publisher one-on-one pitch sessions. The day will be followed by the inaugural induction ceremony for the New Hampshire Literary Hall of Fame. Hosted at Southern NH University in Manchester.
Writers' Day is brought to you in part by a grant from the NH State Council on the Arts, Delta Dental, and Southern NH University. Thank you to Gibson's Bookstore. Thank you also to the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation, who provides a major grant for NHWP's programming throughout the year.

Monday, April 6, at 7 PM
This year we honor Poetry Month by reading this classic novel based on
the life and work of poet Siegfried Sassoon, whose anti-war poetry
revealed the horrors of trench warfare and who influenced other poets of
the time, such as Wilfred Owen. We will also be reading a marvelous and inexpensive collection of World War I poetry published by Dover.
Our book club is open to all. We've chosen an eclectic, ambitious list of books for the coming year: join us for every meeting, or deal yourself in as the spirit moves you.
Most of these titles are in paperback, or should be by the time we'll read them, and they will all be discounted 25% from the publisher's price for the following year, whether you join us for meetings or not.
All meetings unless otherwise noted are on the first Monday of the month, and begin at 7:00, to give you time to have dinner and relax a bit first. Parking is free in the Capitol Commons garage and on the street, after 5 p.m...
