Bring paper and pen! Informal writing group will do spontaneous 10-minute writing exercises based on a phrase, poetry quote, etc. For example, "My mother always told me..." After each exercise, you have the choice of sharing or not sharing with the group. Only positive comments are allowed to encourage creativity (no critiquing yet). These exercises will give you raw material to take home and further develop. Any aspiring writer is welcome. Please bring food and/or drink if you want refreshments. Also, a few dollars to help pay for the Meetup fee would be welcome.
