This writers group meets on the second and fourth Thursday of the month at the McKinney Center. The group this year will focus on developing and generating stories for possible use in the monthly radio show “A Night with the Yarn Exchange” which performs at the International Storytelling Center and airs on WETS 89.5 FM. The group will also develop stories and pieces for other special story-based programs that are part of the Jonesborough Storytelling Initiative. In addition, members are encouraged to bring creative works to develop for their own purposes. Techniques in writing for radio and the stage are regularly discussed.
