MILTON, DE, November 1, 2017 – Writers from The Milton Workshop, a local writing group formed in March 2015 by author and instructor Dianne Pearce, will perform their first live reading event at 6 p.m., Friday, Nov. 3, at Milton Public Library, 121 Union St., Milton.

The event, titled Halloween’s Not Over Yet, will consist largely of adult horror fiction appearing in The Workshop’s debut anthology “Halloween Party 2017,” published in October 2017 by Devil’s Party Press. William F. Crandell, David Dutton, TJ Lewes, Bayne Northern, Dianne Pearce, Mark Polo, Judith Speizer Crandell, Carrie Sz Keane and David Yurkovich will each perform short readings. Pearce will also emcee the event which is scheduled to run for approximately two hours.

Yurkovich coordinated the event with Pamela Batten, assistant director, Milton Public Library. “We look forward to hosting the writers of The Milton Workshop in their first-ever public reading event,” said Batten.

“We’re delighted to be making our public debut at The Milton Library,” said Yurkovich. This year he was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship, Emerging Professional Literature: Fiction, from the Delaware Division of the Arts.

Author David Dutton is a former DDOA Artist Fellow. The workshop recently participated in its first in-store signing, held Oct. 28 at Biblion Books in Lewes, in support of the library event.

The event is open to the public. Parents are advised that some of the works being presented contain language and themes that are not suitable for children.
