Whether you’ve been writing for years or have only recently said the magic words “I am a writer,” you are invited to build your skills within a supportive group. We will discuss idea generation, current projects, writing goals and how to meet them, and the specific skills needed for successful storytelling. There’ll be plenty of time for questions and some fun short writing exercises.
