About this Class

All writing levels and genres are welcome in this safe and fun environment. Use this opportunity to generate new work with the help of prompts for timed writing followed by time to read and receive responses to freshly written material (reading your work is optional).

As one former participant said, "My very best writing emerges out of your group's creative cauldrons ... your comments were spot on, very insightful and helpful." 


    This class will be in the Great Room on the upper level just past the front desk.
