Writing, Rants, & Rambling

A virtual event that happens at 7:00 pm CST on the first Thursday each month.

Come meet with other writers and talk about the art of writing – the good, the bad and the ugly – whatever you’d like to discuss.

You don’t need to be a member to take part – and it’s free! It’s a chance to leave your solitary world in front of the computer (notebook & pencil or typewriter, if you are ‘old school’) and ‘meet’ in the online world with others just like you.

Using Zoom allows writers from all over the province (and elsewhere) to take part, provided you have a stable internet connection.

To take part in these evenings, please email  to receive the Zoom invitation.
