During the last two years, one member has had her first poem accepted for publication, one has had two books accepted for publication and/or published, and a third was selected as the writer in residence by an independent bookstore and given a place to work and a place to workshop her writing. The “Lit Squad” is a multi-generational, multi-racial and welcoming group seeking to reach out to new members to come join us. Under the new slogan ‘Dare to Share,” they are encouraging any Watertown resident or person with connection to Watertown to submit works for sharing on May 20th or August 17th.
