|Our lively and creative clubs provide a variety of writing experiences and opportunities to grow in the craft. As a community we participate in prompted writing and focused instructional activities. Time is always provided to write independently and share our words with one another. Led by experienced facilitators who also love to write, and who will work with individual participants to set writing goals and possibly move toward publication. Write on!
It is YOUR writing club.
