Writing Lounge is for anyone interested in writing to participate with other writers in the community —whether you are a seasoned author or someone newly exploring language in depth, you’ll find a warm and welcoming environment.

The next group of five sessions, offered every other week, is peer-led by a wide variety of local writers. Each session will focus on a different aspect of the craft of writing, with generous time for writing, and for sharing (if you like).
