Did you know, The Phoenix Writers Club hosts a writers workshop after each monthly meeting?
We call it, Write On Writers (WOW), and we would enjoy seeing you there. Write On Writers is an unscripted, open forum where we discuss the craft of writing, share our current works in progress, and offer suggestions and ideas about each other's works. It is not a critique group, more of an open platform to give and receive ideas to help sharpen our skills and write better works. The group is not limited to one or two types of writing, but to ALL writing regardless of the topic or target audience. We hope you will join us, and look forward to hearing from all writers.
Join us at noon on Saturday, August 18th, 2018 at the Blue Water Grill located at 16th Street and Camelback Road. Our guest speaker this month is Patricia Brooks. Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you there.
