Second Sunday Writer's Circle

Summer months, 3-5 pm, Winter months 1-3

Join us for a welcoming gathering of writers, with an open invitation to word-lovers of all medium and experience levels. Even if you’re not sure you’re a “writer” but want to try it, jump in! This event is FREE, so please bring a notebook or writing implement 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, write, read (rather than write, critique). These gatherings will be an energy boost and a chance to explore and experiment in an encouraging environment.
