Our mission during this time of distraction, artistic fatigue, and social isolation is to create a regular time and space for writers to write and to meet each other. In this group, writers introduce themselves and are provided optional fiction, poetry and nonfiction prompts to work on for 60-70 minutes of sustained silent writing time, though they are more than welcome to work on their own projects instead. Small group breakout sessions at the end of our time together encourage participants to share and respond to work generated during the session, or just get to know the other writers in the group.
Alma García’s short fiction has appeared in Narrative Magazine, Kweli Journal, and Bluestem, among others. She holds an MFA from the University of Arizona and has received numerous writing awards. Her novel is currently under consideration at several publishing houses.
