Once a month, on the fourth Tuesday, the YPL Creative Writing Group meets to share ideas; workshop stories, poems, and essays; and help keep one another motivated and excited about our writing projects.
Each meeting begins with sharing our writing news and successes before moving into workshop time – where each member of the group is welcome to share pieces they are working on and get feedback, constructive critiques, and advice from the group. At the end of each meeting, our facilitator assigns a writing exercise, designed to improve our writing, push our boundaries, and inspire us to put more words on the page for next month.
Newcomers are always welcome – our group is diverse, from published authors to writers just starting to get their first stories on the paper, writing in dozens of formats and genres. If you’d like to join, please fill out this “Get to Know You Form” and read our group’s submission guidelines.
