What we're about

The idea for this group is pretty simple. It is a writing group for queer/LGBT women and nonbinary folks who enjoy writing. Be sure to bring your preferred writing tools. If you are nervous about sharing your writing, you will never be forced to share. We want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome.

Simply write! Simple, right?

Depending on what the group is feeling, there will be optional topics/prompts to write about and also time for free writing. Any level of writing proficiency and experience is welcome. Bear in mind that this meetup is in a public setting, so please be respectful with the content that you share aloud.

The coffee shop is low key with symphony music in background, and an overall relaxed vibe.

Any and all queer/LGBT women and nonbinary folks (trans included of course!) are welcome, just so long as you love to write.
