I’ll be facilitating a writing workshop as part of Java Scripts, a monthly community writing workshop hosted by Still Waters Collective at CityNet Cafe (306 E. Wisconsin Ave):

Join us every second Saturday for a casual, coffee house writing series to stretch your imagination, exercise your pen and connect you with new neighbors. Whether you’re a committed writer or a never scribe, we  invite you to get inspired this year! A new facilitator will lead a writing prompt and circle discussion each month.

There’s no admission cost, but we insist that everyone supports the venue with the purchase of a beverage or food.
