Dare to be Heard (1st Monday of each month)

Join us for an opportunity to read your work (prose or poetry) to supportive listeners.  Not a critique group, but enthusiastic support is provided.  Free to members and non-members alike!

Sat. Nov 13, 10 am to noon

Write-in!

Why not write with other writers? Writing at the same time gives us energy and discipline that we can’t get toiling at our desks alone. We do a short a warm-up exercise, work on our individual projects, take a break halfway through, and then wrap-up at the end. Write-in happens one Saturday morning each month. Zoom invitation will be emailed to members a few days before. Non-members wishing to participate can request the Zoom link.
