    Writer's Group
    Jefferson Room

    The Warren Public Library is offering an opportunity for writers to receive feedback and support in their writing. This group is a non-instructor led opportunity for individuals to spend time writing in the company of fellow authors and sharing and critiquing their work and the works of others. The group will meet on the third Wednesday of each month in the Jefferson Room in the basement of the Library. The format for the group will be as follows: each individual will spend from 6-7 p.m. writing; the 7-8 p.m. time slot will be spent sharing writing and seeking support and assistance from their fellow writers. New volunteers moderators will be selected from within the group each month. This group is open to teens and adult and new attendees will always be welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring a visual or writing prompt to each meeting as well as samples of their writing.
