About the event

Community Writing gatherings are led by PVWW Founder Joy Baglio and always feature several (optional) writing prompts that are applicable across genres, though you are always free to bring in-progress writing projects and use the writing time however you're most inspired. After a quick warmup, we spend approximately 40 minutes quietly writing together and the last 30 minutes meeting each other, sharing, and discussing our work and various craft/process questions. Because this is a drop-in friendly event, the size of the gathering changes every time, though the group is usually larger than our other workshops (though we break into smaller breakout rooms to share and discuss). Please note that Community Writing is generative in nature and does not offer craft instruction or feedback on writers' work. If you are interested in instruction, feedback, weekly assignments / accountability, and/or a smaller group of writers that meets weekly, we suggest you visit our Courses.

Please note that Community Writing is always free to attend, though our Pay-What-You-Can donations form helps us continue free events at PVWW. If you are able to contribute, we greatly appreciate it! If not, no worries at all, and just enter "0" in the "Write a price" space, when RSVPing.

​JOY BAGLIO ​is the founder/director of Pioneer Valley Writers' Workshop (PVWW). Her short stories have appeared widely, in journals such as The Missouri Review, Tin House, American Short Fiction, Conjunctions, The Iowa Review, TriQuarterly, Gulf Coast, New Ohio Review, and elsewhere.

Joy holds an MFA from The New School and is currently at work on both a collection of short stories and two novels. She's represented by Peter Steinberg at United Talent Agency (UTA). In her free time, she plays the bagpipes. Follow her on twitter at @JoyBaglio or visit her online at
