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!
