Hollywood Senior Center Writing Group Seeks New Members

The Hollywood Senior Center’s Writers Unite is seeking new members.

They are a writers’ circle open to writers in all genres, including poetry, memoir, flash fiction, short stories, novellas and prose in general.

Their 90-minute sessions start with ten minutes of spontaneous writing which we then share with one another and receive feedback on if so desired. Then whoever has a piece of writing he or she worked on during the week can share it with the group, again with helpful feedback. The atmosphere is supportive and encouraging, and is oriented toward helping novice and more advanced writers improve their craft, while having a good time. Come and join the fun!

The circle is free and meets every Thursdays from 11:00 AM to 12:30 at the Hollywood Senior Center. For more information, please call 503-288-8303. Walk-ins welcome.
