St. Charles Writers Group

The St. Charles Writers Group is a creative writing workshop, open to all those 18 years of age or older looking for a community of writers and seeking to improve their writing. The group meets twice a month and 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
