Meets every Friday, 9:15-11am in the Writers Corner on the mezzanine level of the bookstore.

A generative session of focused writing on a project of your choice. This is a place to work in quiet, but in tacit silent support, with other writers. You may be working on a work presentation, or write in the spirit of "free-writing." Everything is welcome! We check in for 10-15 minutes and commit to a specific piece, or topic. Then the timer starts for 75 minutes. We wrap-up afterwards with any insights or celebrations. There is no reading aloud, although we do share ideas on tech tools, conferences, agents, submission ideas, and more. Facilitated by Kendra Wagner. To learn more about SU&W, visit

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!
