Diverse Voices Writing Group

THU FEB 7 · 5:30 PM

ADULTS & TEENS · A writing group for all experience levels that supports and elevates diverse voices.

Long ago, when we had only darkness at night, people came together around miraculous fire to tell stories and describe visions. When you come to this writing group, whoever you might be outside of this circle, you are now a storyteller, a maker of visions, and a story-listener, too. In this circle there is only support and caring.

This program is free thanks to community support. Join us for Diverse Voices on the first Thursday of each month.
