Sat. Nov 13, 10 am to noon

Write-in!

Why not write with other writers? Writing at the same time gives us energy and discipline that we can’t get toiling at our desks alone. We do a short a warm-up exercise, work on our individual projects, take a break halfway through, and then wrap-up at the end. Write-in happens one Saturday morning each month. Zoom invitation will be emailed to members a few days before. Non-members wishing to participate can request the Zoom link.

Mon. Nov 15, 7:30 pm, in-person!

Guest Speakers: Karin Lam at North Van City Library
