‘Writers Read’, is hosted monthly by the West Tisbury Library and is open to all resident and visiting writers, as well as the public. WR is an interactive forum in which authors ask for audience feedback and questions. “I have been in wonderful writer’s groups on the Island,” says Niki Patton, who facilitates WR. “I also wanted to do something that was available to the public – to give an open voice to the ongoing depth and breadth of writing on this Island.”

“I’d like to give a shout out to Pathways — which hosts this evening and has been giving that ‘voice’ to all local artists for a decade. Thank you”.”

Niki Patton has facilitated Writers Read for five years. In her two decades on the Island she has been active in a wide range of local arts — as actor, writer, singer, musician, and videographer.
