Writing group

Hum Salon

The Writers’ Café writing group is open to all aspiring writers. This is an opportunity to share your work with a supportive peer group and receive constructive critique to help improve your writing. Bring along up to 4 pages (double-spaced, point 12 font) of your writing – either print out a few copies for your fellow writers to read and comment on, or just bring one copy to read out and get verbal feedback. (You are also welcome to come along to read, listen, and give feedback, if you prefer not to share your own work just yet.)
