every last one with a verb. Class participants will learn the techniques necessary

Practice Writing Group | Tuesdays 10:30am–12:30pm; Free
What is a Practice Writing Group?
We are a collection of established writers, beginners and everyone in-between. We meet weekly—regular attendance is not required. A random word or phrase is selected and participants write on
the selection or word of their choice, within a set time limit. Everyone is given the opportunity to share
what they have written, with the option to pass. Those who are present may offer suggestions and encouragement, with the awareness this is very rough material. Another word or phrase is selected and
the process continues.

What is the purpose of a Practice Writing Group?
Each writer has their own goals. These may include, but are not limited to:

• Building a base of writing to further develop.
• Developing the habit of writing.
• Meeting other writers.
• Developing an on-going manuscript.
