TML’s new Writer’s Accountability Group (WAG!) meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 10:30-noon.

From future writers who haven’t found the time to get going, to published authors looking for inspiration for their next book, we’re here to support you in a relaxed, library setting. All levels of expertise and genres are welcome to:

  • Share ideas about writing, editing, and publishing. 
  • Share snippets of your work with a creative, supportive group.
  • Connect with other writers who are as passionate about the craft as you are.
  • Give yourself a deadline each month to show up with your latest work.
  • Have fun!

This month we’ll also be talking about the ins and out of blogging, including simple ways to set up a blog.

Please join us to help get your WAG going!

Songwriting Workshop – February

Tuesday, February 27
6:15 pm – 8:15 pm

If you have a song in your heart, we want to hear it!

Our new 3-month songwriting workshop begins in February with local songwriter and performer Jud Caswell. Jud will begin each session with a short discussion of some of the elements of songwriting craft, and move on to sharing songs. Feedback will be focused on questions or concerns raised by the songwriter, with discussion focused on issues of craft and technique.

Participants should bring a song that is “in process” for feedback and support, along with 10 copies of lyrics to share. We’ll have a sign-up sheet when you get here and will have time each night to share 6 or 7 songs. Come a little early if you want to make sure to get on the list!

The goal of the workshop is to provide a safe place for songwriters to grow their ability. Songwriters of all levels and abilities are welcome!
