What we're about

Are you a writer? Do you have a short story, poetry, or even a whole novel inside you that is just dying to get out? For those who endeavor to create the perfect sentence, plot, character or world building, input from a writer’s group can be particularly advantageous. In addition to creating a community of support and encouragement, a writer’s group also provides the necessary critiquing of each other’s work that is essential to honing your writing skills. This is a safe space, anything besides encouragement and constructive criticism will not be tolerated. 
Please go to https://apld.libcal.com/event/8701266?hs=a to register.
Please do not sign up on Meetup. We don't use Meetup for communication purposes. Please send all communications to this email spila@apld.info or call the library at 847-395-0874. Currently, the meetings will be held virtually, via zoom, and will meet in person at the Antioch Public Library as soon as we are able. It may be a while due to construction at the library.
Members will post their work to a shared Google Drive folder each month, which will be available to members only.
