1st & 3rd Tuesdays, 10:30-11:30am

Who says poetry has to be done in a shuttered attic or at a lonely desk? Come battle your writer’s block with us! This group is an informal meeting to freewrite and converse– we believe writing doesn’t have to be a solitary sport, and that you never know what inspiration might walk through the door. Although we’re open to specialized topics and sharing, there is no formal critique or workshop agenda— simply show up & come and go as you please!
