WRITING and DIARIES

This month, our get-together will be based on diaries – famous and inspiring diaries – authors of diaries – memoir – diary readings – and how to get that diary habit! Join us on Feb. 11th.

SHARE YOUR PROJECT

IN OUR MARCH FWC SOCIAL we are inviting any FWC member to come along to talk about a writing project they are currently engaged in. This can be any kind of writing – and at any stage of development. We’d love to hear what you’re doing.
