NOTE: Meeting Room: Enter the church through the rear entrance closest to the Parham Road side of the building. Upon entering, look for the elevator on your left. Go to the 2nd floor. Turn right when getting off the elevator, go to the end of the hall, turn right, go to the first door on the left past the water fountain.

A Creative Nonfiction Writing Workshop will be conducted at our February meeting. Write up to 500 words, or less, about a birthday -- yours or anyone else's. It can be humorous, serious or sad, but it must be true. Show, don't tell. That is what creative nonfiction writing is all about. Come prepared to read and discuss your work.
