Santiago Writers & NAWG

Santiago Writers & the 2012 National Association of Writing Groups Anthology Competition

Comments on the winning entry: from EDWG (East Dulwich Writing Group)
“Perspectives by Santiago Writers, was the hands-down winner. What we loved about this collection was the sheer reading pleasure it provided. The writing in all the short stories and poems was polished and highly engaging. There was a variety of voices, from writers of all ages and differing degrees of experience. This was not a collection by a group of professional writers but, from the quality of the work, it could have been. There were stories and poems that lingered long in the reader’s mind. Much of the writing was beautifully evocative of place, with powerful sensory imagery and description ripe with emotional weight. In other words, we loved it.”
An important part of the success of the Santiago Writing Group since 2005, has been the local workshops led by professional Canadian and English writers visiting Los Parronales. Living rather isolated (writing) lives, the annual January sessions have been and both utterly instructive and inspiring for group members honing their craft.
