  • For age 16 and older, at least 6 must register to hold the class.
  • The group will meet the 2nd Thursday evening a month through Feb. 2024


More Info

You might not call yourself a writer, but you are! If you write emails, cover letters, grocery lists, text messages, meeting agendas, or gentle reminders to yourself, you’re writing! Maybe, just maybe, you’re wanting to write poetry, longer fiction such as short-stories, or creative nonfiction. Or perhaps you’re wanting to strengthen your business writing such as writing blogs, catchy product descriptions, and other website copy. Regardless of the medium, good writing needs to grab the reader’s attention. To support this writing process, join thisinformal, judgment-free writing group with Molly Ritvo. We will learn a bit about what makes compelling writing (hint: it’s emotion!) and then write together. Sharing is optional.
