Northeast Writing Class

Wednesday, May 8, 2019, 2:00 pm

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 us for an afternoon of writing, every Wednesday from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m., in the conference room on the mezzanine level. It takes one sentence a day to keep the writer's block away.   To respect the flow of the writing process, please arrive on time.
