Chesapeake Bay Writers and Williamsburg Library Offer Free Writing Workshop

Cindy L. Freeman

WILLIAMSBURG — Chesapeake Bay Writers will present “Writing as a Second Career” in a joint presentation with the Williamsburg Library on July 1 at 2 p.m.

The workshop, led by author Cindy L. Freeman, will take place in the Schell Room at 412 N. Boundary Street, Williamsburg.

A published author of novels, blogs, award-winning essays, and two nonfiction books, Freeman also edits for High Tide Publications. In her novels, she tackles sensitive subjects, like homelessness, alcoholism, and abuse, in which strong women find the courage to overcome adversity, according to Chesapeake Bay Writers.

For those who have always dreamed of being a writer but took a different path, Freeman says “It’s never too late. You, too, can become a literary late bloomer.”

In her talk, she will offer suggestions for getting started at any age.

Freeman’s books include “Unrevealed,” “The Dark Room,” “I Want to Go Home,” “After Rain,” and “Farm Girl,” all available from Amazon or High Tide Publications.

Chesapeake Bay Writers is a chapter of the Virginia Writers Club for published and aspiring writers. For additional information about membership and activities, visit or email
