  • Ended

Class Description

Community Writing is for writers of any background, level of experience, and/or genre who are interested in a casual, motivational, drop-in friendly generative gathering, either to generate new work, get back into the creative flow, work on a project in the supportive company of others, meet fellow writers, or simply to make more time for writing. Community Writing gatherings are led by PVWW Founder Joy Baglio and each session features a Writing Prompt / Exercise - applicable across genres - to help get the words flowing, though you are always free to bring in-progress writing projects and use the writing time however you're most inspired. We spend approximately the first hour quietly writing together and the last 30 minutes meeting each other, sharing, and discussing our work and various craft / process questions that arise. Because this is a drop-in friendly event, the size of the gathering changes every time, though it's usually a larger group than our regular weekly workshops (though we break into smaller breakout rooms to share and discuss). Please also note that Community Writing is generative in nature and does not offer craft instruction or feedback on writers' work, outside of opportunities to share work in a casual, supportive environment. If you are interested in instruction, feedback, or a smaller group of writers that meets weekly, we suggest you visit our Classes page on our website!
