As a non-published, non-professional creative writer I decided to start offering writing workshops to foster love of writing in others. You don't have to know where to put a comma or what a conjunction is in order to use writing as a tool for personal expression.  Shortly after the group started, we blossomed into weekly meetings.

On the first and third Wednesdays of the month, we meet and WRITE.  The time is allotted strictly for that purpose.  The alternating weeks are for constructive feedback.  Bring a short selection of your work, read it aloud in the group, and receive constructive criticism and support from your fellow writers.

We all tend to get swamped with everyday responsibilities, stresses and work.  As critical as the two out of three of them are we also need time for ourselves.  Time to nurture our love of writing.

I look forward to meeting you!!!!!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
