Whether you are a seasoned writer, or would like to start fresh from the beginning, we have found that our Writing Workshop can fill your needs. In a very casual, informal setting, we write from prompts and compare notes, with helpful hints to improve your writing in the process.

For two hours on assorted Sundays we gather to write. Unlike highly structured, expensive classes, this workshop can snap you out of a writing block, help with some new ideas for your own writing, allow you to express something you have always wanted to say, or to just dip a toe in the vast pool of writing to see if you get the itch to continue.

All levels welcome. Assorted Sunday afternoon at 4:00pm. $30.00 per session- register for one, or all of them. 

We look forward to seeing you at this fun afternoon of writing.
