Writing Marathon at The Village Works

Everybody has some writing that they’ve been avoiding. Slay the beast!

Whether you’re plugging away at a book, a blog, your resume, or a letter to your elected officials, sometimes writing is easier in good company.

Join us for a night of not checking Instagram, and meet some neighbors while you’re at it. We’ll have The Village Works’s snacks, coffee, and productivity-optimized workspace to help us knock it out.

And if your writing is stuck and need a bit of a creative boost, come over early for Rekindle Your Craft at 6:30PM. Led by Daphne, you’ll work from prompts and if you’re up for it, share with the group. Find out more at http://rekindleyourcraft.com

Tickets are free but limited!
