Do you enjoy writing stories, poems, letters, or short nonfiction? Do you like to create characters, draw scenes, make believable (out of the unbelievable) plots? Join Quills! We'll have fun with creative writing, drawing activities and exercises. We'll polish our skills as story writers, poets, observers of the real, and writers of the real and the imaginary. We'll also sketch & doodle (and when the weather warms up, get outside and take pictures--maybe even write, sketch, & doodle outside)! It's true! Join us! We meet the first Friday of every month @ 4pm in the third floor conference room.
