Write With Us: Pen to Paper

“Pen to Paper” is a free gathering for writers—anyone who writes or wishes to start (or restart). Each one-hour session includes a short craft lesson and a writing prompt, 30-40 minutes of writing time, and an opportunity for sharing your work. Tuesdays 9:30-10:30 a.m. via Zoom, and monthly on the first Thursday in person in Studio Two. Click the icon to learn more.

Write at Open Studio

Studio Two is open for members to write in a quiet, comfortable environment whenever it’s not in use for other Charlotte Lit classes and events. Click the icon to learn more.
