Please join us Sundays 12-2 for Writing in the Open!

Theme will be announced at each session, but everyone is free to work on their own writing project as well. Poetry, prose, fiction, non-fiction. Bring your own project to work on, or use the suggested themes and writing prompts announced at each meeting. Writers are free to share from their writing or not, as they wish.

Introductions at 12:00. Poet and artist Daniel Farnan will lead the introductions and theme for the session.

1:00-2:00 – longer writing session

2:00-3 – Optional open discussion, sharing or continue writing


Note, currently there is no power hooked up in the garden site, so if you are planning to write on your laptop, please bring fully charged.
