If you’d like writing inspiration but don’t want the hassle of homework or the curtain of critique, our new Tuesday evening Wine & Write-In might be the perfect thing for you. Swing by after work or before dinner for inspiring and motivating writing prompts served up with wine and cheese in an ultra-relaxed atmosphere. This is your chance to engage in the writing process with acclaimed novelist and teacher extraordinaire Stephanie Lehmann.
Each week, you can share your pieces with the group or cultivate an aura of mystery — the choice is yours. Either way, you will meet new writer friends, go home with new work, and look forward to the following Tuesday. Open to writers of fiction, non-fiction, and everything in between. All skill levels welcome.
