Come write with me ~ a writing open house

Tuesday afternoons, February 8, 15 & 22
1:30 – 4:30
Free
CJ’s Café, in Bronte, 2416 Lakeshore Rd W, Oakville.
(On the south side of Lakeshore, just east of Bronte Rd, next to Lick’s ice cream – map here.)

On the last 3 Tuesday afternoons in February, you’re invited to bring your laptop or notebook and a piece of writing you’re working on down to CJ’s Cafe to spend a couple hours writing in the company of other writers.

This isn’t a class – there won’t be any lectures or critiquing. It’s an opportunity to write in a convivial atmosphere, with other writers around doing the same you’re doing – getting a story on paper (while sipping the best lattes in North America).

If you’re not working on a piece, and you're looking for something to write, here are some prompts to get you started:
For Feb 8: “An almost perfect ski day”
For Feb 15: “Heartbroken”
For Feb 22: “17 crows”

You don’t have to use these prompts and you don’t have to use them as given. Maybe you want to write about some winter activity other than skiing or about someone who finds her fantasy of true love fulfilled or about some other kind of bird or animal – go for it! Prompts are just to give you a beginning. So get on down to CJ's and order a cappuccino, pull up a chair and get a wisp of a story in your head, and then begin to write…

Note: You don’t need to come for the whole three hours. I won’t be there myself until after 3:00, as I teach a class Tuesday afternoons.

We’ll see how these three Tuesdays go, and if there’s interest, we’ll keep going.
I hope to see you there.
