WRITE ON

Enjoy putting pen to paper with your thoughts and stories?  Join us for a different kind of writing group, that will meet once a month.

Creative writing prompts will be given at the end of each meeting. When we meet, we will discuss our findings, share our writing, and get to know our own unique inner talents!  Give us a call at 967-2778 or send an email to mlbgraves@gmail.com to get on board.

Each of us has a story to tell. We would like to invite you to transform those images and memories into stories or essays, for some of you, maybe even poetry.  We might begin with this prompt: “I don’t know why I remember but . . .” Memories are a great way to tap into the creative process and this type of writing often leads to more imaginative writing. What we decide to do with these exercises will be up to you!
