BAWL Write-in

Online event

EVERYONE IS WELCOME What is a write-in? A Write-in is a set time to write with other writers. A write-in can break writer's block, build confidence, inspire that creature in your brain that has to write and has fallen out of the habit, help you share your thoughts with people who have been there, or a write-in will call out your muse if she is hidden or lost. Write-ins can help stalled writers This is why Write-ins have been a part of the Bay Area Writers League for many years. It keeps you trying, even if it is the only time you write. Life often gets in the way of creativity, no matter the field you want to work in. Visual artists often paint or draw together: to learn from each other and be inspired to continue practicing their craft. At a write-in, writers do the same. We are meeting online now. You don't even have to get in your car and go to a meeting place. If you are new to Zoom, then email us at [masked] for an opportunity to practice first with Carol Pena, our zoom expert We now meet online every Monday and Wednesday from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. We meet twice a month on the first and third Thursdays from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm and once a month on the third Saturday from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. * * * * * Visitors are always welcome! * * * * *
