Night of Songs and Stories
The third Tuesday of each month, the Rehoboth Beach Writers Guild sponsors a Night of Songs and Stories. The evening features original readings (300 words or fewer) by Guild members and music by local musicians, Stuart Vining & Amy Felker.
Each month a theme is posted (previous examples include “escape,” “blue or blues,” and “play as in fun or theater” ) and both the writers and musicians write/perform pieces that in some way connect to this theme. A variation of this is when the featured musicians post the titles of five songs that they will perform, with readers signing up to write a short poem, essay, or story that somehow incorporates the song’s title or lyrics into their piece.

"Thanks to Maribeth, the Guild, Byzantium Sky Press, and my fellow writers for inspiring me to write and publish my two recent books.
"As Albert Einstein said, 'There comes a point in your life when you need to stop reading other people’s books and write your own.'
"How can you argue with Einstein?
