Dare to be Heard (via Zoom)

Join us for an opportunity to read your work (prose or poetry) to supportive listeners from the comfort of your own home.  Not a critique group, but enthusiastic support is provided.  Free to members and non-members alike!

Feb 11, 10 a.m. to noon

Saturday Morning Write-In (via Zoom)

Our popular Saturday morning write-ins restart in October! This informal & supportive group starts with a short warm-up exercise and then gets down to working on individual projects. Writing doesn’t need to be a lonely activity! Working together gives us energy and discipline that we can’t get toiling at our desks alone. Grab a coffee and write together via Zoom!

Guest speaker Sareh Farmand

Sareh is a published poet and graduate of Simon Fraser University’s The Writer’s Studio. She will talk about her debut full-length poetry collection, Pistachios in my Pocket, which tells about her family’s escape from Iran during the Iranian Revolution and their experiences as first wave Iranian immigrants to Canada.
