|We are also pleased to announce how proud we of our former member, Joachim Frank, on whom has just been conferred the Nobel Prize in Chemistry! (If only it had been literature...) Here he is in a snapshot taken ten years ago when Joachim visited us and participated in our VHS summer reading.)
Snapshots are available here from
the 2007 VHS summer reading. Other photo collections from past meetings
are also available here.
Announced workshop meetings are usually held
on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. at the Deutsch-Amerikanisches
Institut (DAI; a.k.a.
"Amerika-Haus"), Sofienstraße 12, near Bismarckplatz/Adenauerplatz,
69115 Heidelberg. Further directions are to be found on the DAI site. Look
for us customarily upstairs – take the elevator to "2.
Obergeschoss." Enduring appreciation goes to DAI Director Jakob Köllhofer for providing the meeting space and moral support.
Charter member Bill Furley has published a wonderful, high-quality book of his poetry. It's a true delight, and one we've all waited for. Click to preview it on Amazon for a look inside and to order. Highly recommended; Bill is a fine, fine poet.
Writers Group, beginning its 27th year (founded in 1994), comprises interested English-language writers
and poets (published or not-yet-published) in or near Heidelberg
or with ties to the region. The group meets irregularly online during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are no dues. Members share current
works with the goal of fostering growth and advancing their craft. Guests
are welcome by arrangement. Periodically the group presents
members' work at public readings and events. A print review
was published in the past; if thee is member interest, we will consider a web journal.
