Writers’ Chapter

Members read and review their stories and poetry. Most of our readings inspire in-depth conversations on the topic at hand. All members are encouraged to bring something to read at each meeting. One reason the group remains small is that we want to ensure that everyone has time to read her work—be it a chapter from a book in progress, a poem, or an essay. And we do keep it lively!  We meet monthly at 12 noon on the third Monday. Each month, a different member serves as hostess, supplying cookies, cake, or other goodies, and all accouterments for tea.

Each month we plan to feature a story or poem written by a member of our Chapter on this page, enabling the wider WCFH membership to share in our joy of writing and reading.  It is our own WCoFH Literary Magazine.  We hope all visitors to our page enjoy our offerings.  The dates for the 2016-2017 season are:  10/17, 11/21, 12/12, 1/23, 2/13, 3/20, 4/17, and 5/15.

Chairs:  Louise Naples (Chair)   Ella McMahon (C0-Chair)

Our own First Vice President, Louise Naples and Past President, Helen Griffen at the 911 Tribute Center

Writers’ Chapter trip to the Algonquin Round Table

In honor of the one hundredth anniversary of the Women’s Club of Forest Hills, all members of the Writers’ Chapter went to the Algonquin Hotel on 44th Street in NYC to celebrate at a venue sacred to writers of the 20th century.  We enjoyed a talk on the history of the room and its illustrious habitués.
