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. Click the icon to learn more.
