Writing Rainbow

Writing Rainbow takes place on the first and third Wednesdays of the month

Writing Rainbow is a twice monthly meetup for LGBTQIA+ folks and our allies. Join us to work on your book, blog, screenplay, story, or anything else you’re working on!

The first Wednesday of the month we’ll share our work. This is the meeting to ask for feedback, help, to practice telling a story in front of a (mini) audience, or even just to practice meeting new people. Our focus will be on gaining responses to our work through constructive criticism, and creating a supportive community space to practice and experiment in.

The third Wednesday of the month we’ll gather to check in on our goals, share suggestions and tips, and do some work together. This is the meeting to introduce your project, do some writing or other quiet work, and stay accountable on your progress to a group.

Join us on September 1 and September 15, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Feel free to leave early or arrive late as your schedule allows

Join us at Around the Table for some good old fashioned board and card games. There are a variety of games available to borrow at the store, or you can bring your favorite game to share! We will have an outdoor table reserved, but space outdoors is limited. We may need to have a group indoors as well if enough people attend. This is kid friendly! There is food and drinks available to purchase. Feel free to arrive late or leave early.

Gayme Night takes place on the Second Fridays of the Month
