We invite you personally to allow yourself joy. Quiet your racing mind and spend a brief hour out of your busy schedule to commune with your jovial literary community.
People, we have a very rare opportunity to congregate with talented individuals of similar interests. We assemble here every Tuesday morning to learn, network and edify one another.
So, embrace the free-flowing exchange of experiences, ideas, and information.
Hope to see you there!

New Announcement: The owner of the Out on the Limb Gallery in downtown Eugene at the intersection of Pearl and Broadway has once again opened his gallery for members of our writers' group to read aloud snippets of their works to family and friends.
