No experience is necessary and all writing formats are considered, from poetry to short stories, from memoirs to fiction. Each session begins with a 10 minute writing exercise, followed by a read-aloud (sharing is optional). Next, participants take turns reading aloud from a current writing project. Assistance with editing on current writing projects is provided; please bring additional copies if interested in editorial support. This group assembles on the third Wednesday of each month from 1pm-3pm in the meeting room of the Aptos branch library.(Hiatus in the month of August).
