I encourage you to check out the new series “Shut Up and Write!” hosted by local poet and author Barbara Marie Minney, which falls on the first Thursday of every month. The next event is this Thursday, November 3rd from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
The “Shut Up and Write!” series is designed to give people a space, and the excuse, to write. It is time set aside for you to create new work in the company of others. And, if two people want to swap work and ideas, we can put you in a Zoom breakout room to huddle without disturbing others.
Register for as many “Shut Up and Write!” events as you wish between now and May at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/shut-up-and-write-tickets-434368657347
