The River Arts Writing Lab is designed to support a range of writing experience, goals, and genres. The emphasis is on providing a means for the participants to share their work, and to give and receive constructive, well-thought-out feedback.
A webpage is provided for those writers who are ready to have their work critiqued (the work can be at any stage of development). Posting manuscripts prior to the meetings will allow more time for careful consideration and productive discussion. Together we’ll develop guidelines for providing respectful and useful feedback.
A period of less structured time for reading, writing, or sharing will also be a part of the meetings.
The aim of the Writing Lab is to support each other by giving and receiving helpful commentary. It’s a cooperative effort. The group welcomes ideas for other activities that encourage and expand our writing skills.

T'ai Chi Chu’an is a sequence of precise body movements done slowly and without effort that balance the flow of energy within the body. Developed in China where it has been practiced regularly by millions for a millenia, T'ai Chi requires no special clothes or equipment, keeps you on your feet, takes only a few minutes a day, can be learned at any age, and builds internal health.
If you find it difficult to concentrate, can't find time for sports or regular exercise, or feel that your life is wearing you out and making you tense, then perhaps you should discover T'ai Chi Ch'uan. It can improve your balance, and introduce you to the basics of selfdefense, while coordinating your mind and body. T’ai Chi is ideal for individuals with sedentary or repetitive jobs. It frees the body of tension rewarding its practitioners with energy and focus.Intro classes to T'ai Chi last an hour and run for 6 weeks, each building on the one before. T'ai Chi is a sequence of precise movements, 108 in all, divided into 3 sets. The intro class teaches the first of the 3 sets. Students who find T'ai Chi appealing usually take the intro class 1-4 times. From 11-12pm will follow a more advanced class immediately after the intro class, tailoring it to the specific needs of the group. Instructor Bio: Alan Erdossy began studying this moving yoga of China in 1970 and has taught at businesses, movement studios, and art centers throughout the Northeast. Mr. Erdossy earned an MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 1972 and while in LA studied T'ai Chi with master Marshall Ho'o. Marshall is a member of Black Belt magazine's Hall of Fame, was chairman of the National T'ai Chi Ch'uan Association, and founder of the Aspen Academy of Martial Arts. Alan also runs fly fishing schools in Northern NH.and Vermont, and has taught T’ai Chi locally at GMCR, River Arts, One Studio, and Ballet Woilcott
