The desire to write grows with writing
The Centre's Writing Commons offers a space and a time to come together with other writers on a regular basis to develop ideas, discipline the practice of writing and focus on specific topics over the course of the year.
The Writing Commons will take place on TUESDAYS.
8:30 am to 11:30 am: Drop in writing space featuring one mini-lesson (15 - 30 min.) and time to talk and share your drafts with others.
2:00 - 5:00 pm: Opportunity to schedule an individual one-on-one meeting for writing support (email Chris Eaton: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Coffee and Tea are available. A fridge is in the room if you wish to bring lunches. Everyone welcome!
