Monthly Writing Group

Join a supportive group of writers for a monthly one-session writing group and write from memory or imagination in a comfortable, judgement-free zone. You’ll be surprised at just how many stories you have to tell.

Sunday TBD

Time: 1-3:15 PM

Cost: $25/session; $20/session seniors and students

Place: TBD

If this is your first writing group with Pocket Writes, please complete the form on the contact page. (Be sure to fill in the writing group date you are attending!) All writers can direct any questions or concerns about the writing group to pocketwrites @ gmail dot com.

Please note: your spot will not be held until payment is received via the PayPal link below. 

What to expect:

We’ll spend our time together writing with several carefully planned prompts (5-15 minutes each) meant to spark our creativity. I might read a poem or present a scenario–all crafted to help you generate ideas. And in the Amherst Writers method, I’m not a teacher–I’ll be writing right alongside you.

Each group member is encouraged to share their writing aloud. And that includes the facilitator–we’re in this together. In the spirit of the method, our responses to the writer are always positive. I’ll ask group members to tell the writer what they’ll remember or what worked in the piece.  This is not a critique group! 

All of the writing is treated as fiction, so the focus will be on the story, not on you. (Which I think you’ll find incredibly liberating–I know I did!)

So whether you are an experienced writer, just curious, or someone who hasn’t written in ages, let’s write together.
