UU Life Writers – 10:30 a.m. Dec. 5 & 19 – online

UU Life Writers’ 20th Year Anthology is just about ready for publication! We will let everyone know when copies are available.

The group will meet Dec. 5 and 19 on Zoom. The prompt is sent on the Monday before. We write stories and then read them to the group. It is not as great as being together, but it is working, and it is fun in another way.

There is always an open invitation to anyone who enjoys writing and sharing. All are welcome to join us.
