Wednesday, October 23, 2019, 7:00 pm

They say that 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.

We will meet on Wednesdays from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Palisades Library conference room.
