Palisades Writers Workshop

Wednesday, September 18, 2019, 7:00 pm

They say writing is a solitary task. That's true, but sometimes you need the energy of a warrior, the inspiration of a teacher and the input of thoughtful peers to keep working at it. If you have a piece of fiction or non-fiction in the works, or you’ve completed a draft, join O. Dada (Library Associate and Pushcart Prize winner) for a 10-week writing workshop starting January 24. We will meet on Thursdays from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Palisades Library conference room.
