Are you currently working on a novel, a short story, a travel book, a how-to, a memoir or other writing project? Our writing groups give writers a place to get support, feedback, inspiration and validation. We meet twice a month to read each others' work and provide support and suggestions. Our members say that that the groups have made them more productive by providing a deadline, and helped improve their writing. Tuesday and Thursday night sessions are currently looking for a few new writers. Both meet at the Lafayette Library.
