All supplies are included with the class, and no previous experience is necessary. Great for ages 8 to 108. $25 per person. 10 student cap, so please call to register. 715-462-3453

Writer’s Circle

2nd Sundays of each month 2-4 pm

Join us for a welcoming gathering of writers, with an open invitation to word-lovers of all medium and experience levels. This event is FREE, so please bring a notebook of your choice. In the spirit of Natalie Goldberg’s “Writing Down the Bones,” the focus of these gatherings will be to infuse our practices with timed writing exercises, based on prompts. The format is: write, read, write, read, (rather than critique), so embrace the adventure!
