Daily Hampshire Gazette: Works in progress: Writers of all levels finding connection amid cancellations

Ellen Meeropol, who has just released her fourth novel, Her Sister’s Tattoo says she has benefited from feedback from her “manuscript group,” a small group of published writers who meet regularly to share their work in progress. “To be part of that community has been so important for my work,” she said.

Meeropol had been scheduled to read from her new novel in mid-April at Broadside Bookshop in Northampton. With that event now canceled, she, like others writers, has been investigating the online video platform Zoom to stay in touch with her fellow writers. “We’ll find a way to make this work,” she said.
