Disabled Writers Drop In

April 3 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Disabled Writers Drop In

This monthly virtual meet up is a chance for Disabled writers to connect and write in community. Emerging and experienced writer’s welcome. Whether you write all the time or are wanting to find ways to incorporate more writing into your life this is a chance to spend an hour together to make some room for our writing. Whether you use voice to text, a pen and paper, a brailler, typing or bringing someone with you to transcribe when writing, all methods of playing with words are welcome! This program occurs the first Wednesday of every month.

Each meet up has:

-Opening go around sharing the successes and challenges of our writing this month

-20-25 minutes of writing time together. A prompt will be given but you are welcome to bring anything you like to work on.

-Depending on the size of the group, optional sharing of a few lines of your writing (no formal feedback, we will listen to each other’s words and can use the reaction buttons). Sometimes lines or words are shared to create a collective poem.

-Reading a poem by a disabled writer.
