Aspiring writers are often told that the only way to see their dreams come true is to pick up a pen or start typing at a keyboard. But what about those for whom these instruments are not an option?

For people suffering from repetitive strain injuries or arthritis, those who have visual problems, or who cannot sit for long periods of time, simply getting the story on to the page can be a more complicated process.

At the Sunday, Oct. 20, meeting of Willamette Writers’ coast chapter in Newport, author Maren Bradley Anderson will present alternatives for writers beyond the keyboard or pen.

Anderson is a writer, teacher and alpaca rancher in Oregon. She is the editor of The Timberline Review and PURE Insights and has written plays for the Apple Box Children’s Theater. Her writing has appeared in The Christian Science Monitor, Alpacas Magazine and The Timberline Review. She teaches at Western Oregon University. Her novels include “Sparks,” “Closing the Store” and “Fuzzy Logic.”

Sunday’s presentation, which is free and open to all, will run from 2 to 4 pm at the Newport Public Library, 35 NW Nye Street.
