Is carving out time for your writing practice a challenge? Do you benefit from community and structure as writing supports? This monthly generative writing session will support you in producing new non-fiction that may stand alone, or serve as sections in longer pieces. There is no pre-work required. You’ll come, warm-up, and write with constraints and prompts that foster creativity. We’ll share our work out loud to end each session. And you’ll leave with enough to keep you motivated until the next month’s session.
