No Meetings Until Further Notice

Taking the lead of the Carver County Libraries and out of an abundance of caution and concern for our health all Writers Group meetings are canceled until further notice.  

Take care everyone!

Write up a storm while we’re social distancing. Maybe that will have to be a prompt.
