Tell Tailors

Write-ins: 3 & 17 October

Drop-in gatherings for no-excuse writing.

Join us for a 90-minute stretch of focused writing in the company of familiar faces and perhaps a nosh or beverage.

We’ll keep the first hour dedicated to pens on paper, so bring your notebook/laptop and whatever writing project is on your front burner. Not working on anything specific right now? No problem. We’ll have a few prompts and writing ideas to get you rolling on something new.

For those who wish to share your work or your writing process, let’s discuss! We’ll lift the silence for the last half hour.

Tell Tailors Guild founded

We invite you to join our collective of writers, thinkers, and creators. Like the guilds of the Renaissance, our aim is to further the interests of our artistry, avail ourselves of mutual support, and keep an eye on one another. Writing may be a solitary act, but the act engages a community.

Meet other writers, discover interval writing, and take home some new writing tools.

Please join us Saturday, December 15, 2018 at the Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City. We’ll see you in the Gene Albaugh Community Room from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Please bring your notebooks, pens, and imaginations.
