Roane County Writer's Club

Do you write?  Have you always wanted to write a book, poetry, memoir, news articles, scripts for plays or movies?  Would you like to be involved in a writer's group that costs nothing, accepts all members, has a friendly and welcoming approach to support of your writing goals?

We have no dues or education/experience requirements.  Our only expectation is that you have an interest in writing and are willing to participate in a group setting as an equal.  Give us a try - we look forward to meeting you at the Kingston Public Library, Thursday nights from 6pm until 7:30-ish.
