The WriteNOW! informal writing group. Why informal? There will be a facilitator (Carol Darrow, CG) who will help the interaction, but there will not be a formal lecture. Instead, there will be actual writing and sharing of that writing. We'll also talk about setting a goal for your writing output (book, article, short story, multi-volume family history) and organizing information in an interesting way for your reader.
