    Sorry this event and its waiting list are full

    Do you love to write? Is writing the air you breathe, or is there ink in your veins?

    The Stittsville Creative Writing Group is a collection of people who love to write.

    We meet weekly to read from text we have written on our own time during the previous week, and engage in other writing activities.

    This is not a class on writing, or a workshop for manuscripts. Instead, we are people who love to write and share our works. 

    There are those who mostly listen rather than write, those who write prolifically but only share with the group, and a broad spectrum in between.

    If your interest is in the love of writing, this group may be for you.

    You want your book to look both beautiful and professional. Thom Whalen has fifteen years experience publishing his own and other author's books. He will explain the decisions an author must make when designing both the cover and interior of a book. This understanding is important to authors who publish their own books, whether they develop the skills themselves or contract with specialists to do the work for them.
