"To sit down and write, we must engage our senses and tap into reservoirs of memory and imagination—reservoirs we may not even know we have," says meetup leader and Writing Salon executive director, Ben Jackson. "And while writing, we have to be as open and honest as possible, allowing the creative process to carry us away."

Occurring on a seasonal basis, Writing Salon meetups are designed to provide an intentional and facilitated space to help you keep a finger on your own creative pulse. At the same time, you'll have the opportunity to engage with a community of other like-minded writers.

In this in-person meetup, Ben will provide optional writing prompts and exercises, pre-writing activities, and more. Expect a fun and stress-free environment to play on the page and to interact with other writers.
