Creative Writers Workgroup @ Vault Books and Brew
Nov 2 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Come write with us!  If creative writing is your jam, but you need a little inspiration, come join the Creative Writers Workgroup at the Vault.  Start by drawing a number, find your corresponding safe deposit box and extract your three random items (and oh my, are they random!).  Write a short story incorporating each of the three items.  It can be creepy, romantic, suspenseful, funny or all the above!  The plan is to meet monthly to write, peer edit, and write some more.  At the end of 12 months, we will publish our stories in a bound book.
