The Evergreen Writers Group meets in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia to discuss our writing ideas, read our latest efforts, offer constructive criticism, and help each other reach our creative writing goals. We have varied levels of writing experience and interests in almost every genre, from historical fiction and memoirs to mysteries and science fiction. Our current group comprises poets, short story writers, novelists, and photographic artists.
We draw our members from the Halifax metropolitan area and normally alternate our twice monthly meetings between Evergreen House and the Alderney Gate Library. During the pandemic we’ve met online via Zoom.
A major focus of the Evergreen Writers Group has been the three anthologies we’ve written and published.
Our most recent anthology is Water’s Edge, published in March 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. It contains thirty-six contributions from sixteen members on the theme of prose and poetry celebrating Nova Scotia’s aquatic heritage. It is truly Nova Scotian.
Our earlier anthologies are Out of the Mist: 22 Atlantic Canadian Ghost stories, and Off Highway, Journeys by Nova Scotia Writers.
In Halifax, you can purchase copies of Water’s Edge at Carrefour Atlantique in Historic Properties and Bookmark on Spring Garden Road. In Dartmouth, you can find them at Chapters at Mic Mac Mall and the Dartmouth Book Exchange on Cole Harbour Road. Farther afield, we have copies at Eastern Shores Gallery on Highway 7 at Head of Jeddore and the Masstown Market off Highway 104 at exit 12. Copies of Out of the Mist and Off Highway are available at Carrefour Atlantique, Eastern Shores Gallery and Masstown Market.
