They say writing is a solitary task. (That's true.) But sometimes you need the energy of a warrior and the inspiration of a teacher to continue, to overcome a block, to make it to the last sentence of your work. No matter what you're working on (fiction, non-fiction, poetry), join Rez (Library Associate with an MA in Creative Writing from Johns Hopkins University) for an evening of writing, every Thursday from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m., in the conference room on the mezzanine level. It takes one sentence a day to keep the writer's block away.
