South Bay Writers Upcoming Events

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2014 (4:00 PM)


New “Speaker Series” season kicks off 2015

JINGLE BASHSouth Bay Writers will host its annual “Jingle Bash” holiday party in San Jose on Sunday, December 14. This year’s potluck bash caps a year of illuminating monthly speakers and insightful workshops, and celebrates the spirit of the club’s camaraderie.

“I so look forward to December’s Bash: happy conversation, wine, and those palate pleasing delectables; the absence of all that technical stuff, like craft and publishing, intended to help with my writing,” said Dave LaRoche, Vice President of the South Bay Writers Board of Directors. “Whew! Glad that’s over for a while—though I will miss Harry’s.”

South Bay Writers President Colin Seymour agreed. “This is a chance to share some laughs, for a change,” Seymour said. “We don’t get to socialize with our fellow club members as often as we’d like, and it’s not always easy to progress from associates to friends. The better we know one another, the more we can help one another.”
