The Writers' Circle

Mission Statement

We are the people from within the community who like to write. We meet monthly in an open forum to share ideas, conduct workshops, have discussions, and to support each other in our efforts. Our membership is fluid and new faces are always welcome. We are the best teachers because we are also students. There is no membership fee. We look forward to seeing you.


Please call Paul at 345-8513 for more information about The Writers' Circle.
