Write Night

Where
McCourt Room

This is an ongoing writing group that is dedicated to encouraging exploration and refinement of writing craft. We will read each other’s work, provide feedback, and talk all things literary. Please bring a laptop, or paper and a writing instrument. 

All adults welcome. More information regarding our process and google docs will be provided at our monthly meeting. (We use google docs to collaborate month-to-month: reading works before meetings allows us to spend more time critiquing.)
