Meetings and Events

We will conduct all our events online until which time it is safe to have in-person events again. We eventually hope to hold hybrid meetings so that those who cannot attend in person will still be able to take part. All meetings are free to the public. All writers, no matter their genre or gender, will be welcome to attend.

Most meetings run from 2:00-3:30 PM Central Standard Time and will be hosted on our Zoom account.
