Manhattanville Creative Writer’s Circle









Fall is falling. It’s time to rake through the leaves of your memories and make a collage of  stories to enjoy in the coming months. In supportive virtual sessions on Zoom, you may drop-in, share your stories, and give feedback to each other with the hopes of improving your craft. 

We also share resources about publishing and submitting to literary journals. One of our members has just entered a piece into a contest and several of our members have been published in online literary journals.

Wendy K. Mages had her story, “Embracing Strangers, published in Antithesis Journal Blog   It was selected by the newsletter Memoir Monday as one of the featured essays in this week’s curated selection.

Mages’ “Hatchling,” a ten-word story, was published online earlier this year in Potato Soup Journal.

Katherine Flannery Dering, Manhattanville MFA alumna, let us know that her story,   “Gula, the Dog Girl,” was published in Share Journal online last Spring.

The group was started by students and alumnae of Manhattanville College’s MFA in Creative Writing program. If you are interested in joining us, we will send you meeting reminders along with some resources and events for writers in the Rivertowns and Westchester. 

To register or request a Zoom link to our next meeting, you may send your request to and indicate the title of the program, date, your name and email.
