Poverty Busters are low-income community members, partners from agencies, and other community members working on grassroots strategies to increase poverty awareness locally and to remove the barriers that poverty creates. Both groups are now meeting together to improve communication and to ensure that the CCC is effective in helping to change outcomes for those it serves. Parents, service providers and other community members are welcome!

Revision: Where the Good Stuff Happens

Online Event Anywhere you can connect to the internet, ME

In this two-session workshop (January 4 and 18), author Penny Guisinger will provide tools and approaches to revising prose (fiction or nonfiction). We’ll talk about bringing a cold eye to the page, looking for unnecessary words, and mining an early draft for those gems that emerge as the heart of a finished piece. In an open process of sharing and feedback, participants will shape drafts into more polished manuscripts.
