Everyone tells stories and everyone listens to stories. Join this study group to write your own stories in whatever form you wish: fiction, poetry, essay, or memoir. This is where you can speak your mind and be totally original as you learn to trust your imagination. Whether you write to discover what you are thinking about, or you write to get something off your chest, whether what you write takes you by surprise or expresses long held beliefs, you will be welcome here. You, the creator, can equip your characters to think and behave in familiar or unfamiliar ways, whether they come from your imagination, or were part of an event or place that you remember or have an opinion about. We invite you to submit long or short pieces that will be read aloud and discussed to enhance our pleasure and learn from the process. From time to time we will read published authors to focus on particular writing challenges. Our group is founded on the premise that everyone has a spark of creativity that puts us in touch with ourselves and with our ways of understanding and grasping our complex world. New and experienced writers are invited to participate. All are welcome.
