Neighborhood Writers Group

The Northside Neighborhood Writing Group will have its first meeting Saturday March 25, 2000 from 2:00 p.m to 4:00 p.m. at the Homewood Studios Gallery, 2400 Plymouth Avenue.

The purpose of this first meeting will be organizational - what do we want our group to look like? how often do we want to meet? do we want teachers? guest writers? facilitators? peer support? something else? Please come with your ideas for bringing this group to life.

On February 19 and 20 at Homewood Studios' Grand Opening there will be a sign up sheet for those interested. If you will not be at the Grand Opening please contact Debra at 374-8427 or by email dstone@extension.umn.edu.

About a dozen interested writers attended the organizatonal meeting. We agreed to meet from noon to two p.m. on the third Saturday of each month at HOmewood Studios gallery. In addition we agreed our focus would be our own work rathr than classes and lectures from invited writer/guests. Each member of the group will lead the meeting on a given Saturday. New members always welcome.
