Write Track


Write Track is an informal discussion about writing topics held the second Saturday of each month. There is no charge for attending, though you'll probably want order lunch. We have a discussion lead who will kick things off by introducing the topic and telling a bit about their experience with it. Then it's time for you to ask questions, or share what you've learned about the topic. We have some fun with it and learn a lot.

Be ready to share your favorite tips, tricks and tools from websites, books, apps, conferences and more. Pamela Kleibrink Thompson, who has written for dozens of magazines, will conduct the lively discussion this month.
