What we're about

Creative non-fiction writing group that draws inspiration and insights from being near or on the Chesapeake Bay. Part nautical, part narrative, members meet informally to share expertise in journal writing and personal essays in natural settings and quaint waterside nooks. No prior writing experience needed. Just a love of words, water, creative voices and storytelling.

Trick or Treat: What's in Your Candy Bag?

Online event

Happy Halloween, writers! We're still ZOOMing......... When you were a kid, did you look in your candy bag and sort through what you liked and didn't like? Did you toss some of it or feed it to the dogs? Take it to school to trade? We all get things in our Candy Bag we don't want and plenty that we do! This crazy-ass CORONACOASTER year, we get to create our own Candy Bag. Yum. PROMPT: Write[masked] words to describe what's in your Candy Bag -- items can be things, thoughts, emotions, other people (dead or alive), mistakes, hopes, goals, blurbs, songs, aspirations, dreams, etc. But, your Candy Bay MUST contain the following 10 items (and tell us why it made the Candy Bay): 1. Something you said you wish you could take back. 2. A trip you've wanted to take for as long as you can remember. 3. Something you'd carry in your pocket all the time if you could. 4. A favorite item of clothing from when you were a child. 5. Just the thing you need for your favorite hobby. 6. A memento from the last restaurant you ate at by candlelight. 7. Something in your house that makes you smile. 8. The perfect ice cream sundae. 9. A photo you meant to take but didn't and now you wish you had. 10. Your favorite adult size candy bar. Have fun! First-timers welcomed; so are folks from outside the Annapolis area. This is a welcoming group with a range of voices. Come check us out! Halloween garb and witches' brew, optional. Should you have questions, please let me know Gwen Mayes[masked]. Gwen Mayes is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
