The Rules of the Road:

• Our goal is to become more proficient as writers, while expanding our own personal

    approaches to self-expression.

• Group size is limited to eight people.

• We meet at 10:00 AM, on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.

• Differing opinions are fine, debate is not. Political writing leads to rebuttal: please avoid.

    group. It's for writing, reading, and responding.
