What we're about

Let's talk literature, poetry, writing… This group is for anyone interested in getting together for inspiration and literary conversation. Join River River Writers' Circle, our community of writers in the lower Hudson Valley here on Meetup, or find out more on our website and online literary journal, RiverRiver.org (http://riverriver.org).

We meet for shared writing time, for trips to nearby literary and arts events, for open mic readings, and for workshop-style discussions. Looking forward to meeting more word-obsessed friends!
