St. Charles Writers Group

The St. Charles Writers Group is a creative writing workshop that meets the second and fourth Saturday of each month from 9:15 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. The group is open to all those 18 years of age or older looking for a community of writers and seeking to improve their writing. The group is facilitated by Lisa Macaione. Prospective members are encouraged to visit. The public is encouraged to come to our semi-annual readings. There is no fee for membership; the only requirement is a commitment to writing and a commitment to support your fellow writers. Questions? Contact Denise Blaszynski at 630-584-0076, ext. 240.  DROP IN
