Have your creative juices slowed to creative sludge? Get things going or just keep it flowing with a supportive group of storytellers.

But we're not just storytellers. We're also writers, poets, illustrators, performers, and all manner of creative types.

We'll meet to discuss original work, favorite pieces, and do some creative writing exercises. We'll also look into self publishing and performing stories for the TV-deadened public.

All experience and ability levels are welcome.  Through constructive criticism and mutual support we can all get better, no matter where we're starting.

    "I've always loved writing as a hobby, but I haven't really done much in the last 5 years. I'd like to get back into the swing of things and dust off the cobwebs. I have many ideas for books/novels, so I really want to just get them down on paper."

    "I LOVE to tell stories that inspire, evoke laughter, self-reflection­ and pass on history. Oral history has always been huge in my family. It's the way people have passed on proverbs and explored the meaning of life since time immemorial."
