Have others often said, “You should write that story down before it gets lost?” Do you like exploring thoughts and observations through poetry? Enjoy creating fiction? Or have you always wanted to write but been too timid to try it?

Then this creative writing group is for you. We’ll get together to share what we’ve written, and be supported in whatever genre we choose. We’ll self-direct our group, welcome occasional speakers, and write, write, write.
