What we're about

Welcome to the Minneapolis Free Association Writer's Circle! 
This group is open to ALL writers, no matter your background or experience. 
Free Association Writing, which may also be described as Stream-of-Consciousness writing, asks you to set your ego aside for a moment and write freely. 
A stark contrast to more structured writing groups or workshops, at MplsFAWC, we only ask that you arrive prepared to get creative with your words. We aim to provide a safe space where writers can let their minds unleash whatever powerful, mundane, unusual or even unexpected thoughts that decide to pop up. Our hope is to break apart your writer's block, shake loose your thoughts, and give you a little bit of freedom to play with your words in a creative & energized space.

Each meetup will be loosely structured, to follow the Free Association spirit:

• We'll start with writer introductions and a brief overview of Free Association for newcomers. 
• We'll then take approximately 30 minutes to free associate through writing. Please bring pen and paper for this. Prompts will be provided at the beginning for anyone who wishes to use them as a jumping-off point, though this is not required. 
• After, we'll make time to allow each person to share any and all of their writing, if they wish. Sharing is always welcome but never mandatory.

We look forward to free associating with you!

>>This is a community funded MeetUp. We will have a donation jar at each gathering or you can send a donation through PayPal Friends and Family to minneapoliswriters@gmail.com THANK YOU!<<
