Meetings and Events

We feature several write-ins throughout the week, general meetings once a month, an annual writer’s retreat in July, an online auction, and an annual NaNoWriMo Challenge.

Weekly Write-Ins

Finding it hard to set aside time to write lately? Let’s write together! We meet via Zoom three times a week for writing on the following days:

Mondays, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
Tuesdays 6-8 p.m.
Thursdays 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

We chat for five minutes, write for 20 or 30, and repeat. For more information, fill out a form on our Contact Us page.
