What is your story? What matters to you most? This interactive group will comprise simpatico nonfiction writers to support each other's writing. Work on your memoir, personal essay, opinion piece, manifesto, flash, reflection, or any other nonfiction on any topic. We will use prompts to generate ideas and deepen insights. We will respectfully critique each other's work and learn together. We will share passages that inform our writing. We will create a welcoming and motivating writing community. All experience levels welcome. Please come ready to share. This is a new group and over the first couple meetings we'll discuss YOUR  goals in joining the group. Facilitated by local writer Karen Franklin.

Village Books hosts many writing groups (including this one!), usually in the Writers' Corner on the mezzanine level of the store or in the Readings Gallery on the lowest level. Come meet other writers who can help you get organized, give feedback, and help you with your writing goals. These groups are free and open to newcomers and drop-ins. Feel free to just show up!
