WORD CAFÉ

Writing is lonely work. Why not sometimes do it together?

Mondays @ 9-11:00 am

Location: Catherine Dianich Gallery, 139 Main Street. Down the alley, through the glass doors & past the gallery walls.

How it Works: We will briefly introduce ourselves and our projects/goals at the beginning of each session, and then work quietly side by side. All genres are welcome. Writers are welcome to take quiet tea/coffee breaks (away from the writing table) to chat.

This is a wonderful way to launch your creative week with focus, connect with other writers, and dedicate time to a new or ongoing writing project.

$5-10 drop in donation

Facilitator: Robin MacArthur

WRITE FOR CLIMATE

In this rapidly shifting world we need all kinds of warriors using all kinds of skills to help keep this planet livable for future generations. This is a free gathering, open to all who want to use words to fight, grieve, protect, reflect or reimagine. All writing genres are welcome—in the past this group has generated climate-themed letters to the editor, poems, essays and pieces of fiction. This gathering is sponsored by Word House, 350 Vermont, and MotherUp! Vermont. We hope you’ll join us!

When: Fridays, 9-11 am

Where: Patio Coffee & Word House. Hooker Dunham Patio & Catherine Dianich Gallery, 139 Main Street. Down the alley, through the glass doors & past the gallery walls.
