The Writing Happy Hour!
It’s been too long! We’ve been missing you. Luckily we’ve struck upon a way to see each other more—it’s called The Writing Happy Hour, our new weekly virtual meetup. It comes with prompts to get you started, a relaxed atmosphere for writing, and the friendliest bartender in town. It’s also a chance to chat with your fellow writers and share a little work, IF you feel like it. There’s on and off screen time to avoid zoom exhaustion, and it’s short and sweet too.
All we ask is for a sliding-scale donation of 5-10 euros.
