Family Writing Nights

Family Writing Nights create both social and creative outlets for families to enjoy writing within a community. The purpose is to experience writing as a form of creative expression and communication. Whether the attendee is relaying an experience or painting an image with words (or even crayons for younger children), this evening encourages all to express themselves and share with others. By carefully structuring this event, attendees will understand expectations and should enjoy the evening.
