Next Meetings 11/15, 12/13, 1/17

This month’s special event: NaNoWriMo! We will still have our usual meeting but bring a laptop as we tap away to writing prompts. Want to get started now? Try this:

You find a genie’s lamp buried in the sand. What happens next? Remember to invoke the senses. Your audience will want to see it, touch it, hear it, smell it, maybe even taste it. Rub away!

Still interested in a critique? We will do that too, but with a bit less volume. Bring a work to share up to 1000 words.

For those who weren’t able to make the annual conference, those of us who attended will fill you in on all the highlights.

COME JOIN US
Lakeland Writers is open to all individuals who write for profession or pleasure.

3340 South Florida Avenue
