All genres and stages of writing welcome!
This group is for writers, tudents, and academics to come together for weekly focused writing in a group setting. Whether you are working on non-fiction, fiction, poetry, blogs, journaling, or professional writing, the writing process can benefit from focused “sit down, shut up, and put words on paper" sessions in a supportive group setting.
This meeting consists of a series of timed writing sessions designed to help develop momentum in the writing process. Arrive at the library cafe between 1:30-2pm for introductions and goal sharing. After moving to a spacious conference room, we begin our first writing session promptly at 2:00 pm, writing for fifty minutes. Take a break and do it all over again!
Participants are encouraged to arrive on time and join both writing sessions, but the door will always be open. You may join at any time and stay for as few or as many writing sessions, depending on their availability and writing needs.
