An Invitation to Write

"What are these,
So wither'd, and so wild in their attire;
That look not like the inhabitants o' th' earth,
And yet are on 't?"
~ William Shakespeare, "Macbeth"

What was the best part of Halloween for you as a kid? The costumes? The dark? The candy, or something else? Go!

Bagels with the Board
November 2nd
10:00 - 11:30 am

Who's on our Board of Trustees? What does it take to be a member of the Board of Trustees at Women Writing for (a) Change? How are decisions made to enhance and maintain our writing community? If I have an idea, how do I pass it on to someone?


These are great questions that we'd love to answer at our upcoming Bagels with the Board Community Circle, being held from 10-11:30 am on Saturday, November 2nd. Meet many of our current Board members and share your questions as part of a free 90-minute writing circle. Enjoy bagels, fruit, coffee, and tea and learn more about how the Board supports our writing community. Seating is limited--registration recommended.
