Westfield Writers Group

November 17 at 1:00 PM (Special Date! Due to Thanksgiving we will be meeting on the 3rd Thursday of the month in November.)

Prompt for November: Electronic devices - iPhones, computers, thermostats, microwaves and more. They control our lives. Stressful or helpful? Tell us what you think.

Wanted: Writers or want-to-be writers who have a story or memoir they would like to write, an interest in different styles of writing, a wish to interact with other writers and a desire to write in a non-judgmental environment.

This is a 'just-for-fun' group. We're not professional writers. The intent is not to teach you to write but to encourage you to write something each month. Prompts are constructed with the hope that you will be inspired to write on a broad range of topics.

Email librarian@wwpl.lib.in.us to be put on the email list for meeting reminders and for the writing prompts we will be using each month.

Library Board Meeting

Visit our website for details. Library Board will meet in-person and via Zoom.
