FRIDAY NIGHT WRITES IS ON!
A happy hour of writing!
February 4 | In-person at ACW (masked & vaccinated)
We were disappointed to have to cancel January’s installment of Friday Night Writes, but we knew it was the right thing to do with the post-holiday spike in COVID cases. Now, we’re excited to invite you in this Friday, Feb 4 at 5 pm for a casual writing hang-out. Just remember to wear a mask and bring proof of vaccination.
What is Friday Night Writes?
We’re offering an after-work space for you to decompress, connect, and write with a community of other creatives in a warm, inviting environment. Sleep in an extra hour on Saturday because you got your writing done the night before!
