Free NY Writers Coalition Drop-In Workshop at Carroll Gardens Library

IMG_7196
In response to Hurricane Sandy, the NY Writers Coalition, one of the largest community writing organizations in the country, will be providing free creative writing workshops throughout New York City. One such workshops will be held at the Carroll Gardens Library right here in the neighborhood.

Free NYWC Drop-In Workshop at Carroll Gardens Library
 396 Clinton St
Tuesdays @ 5:15-7:30 p.m.

Rose Gorman provided more information on the event:
Open to writers of all genres — poetry, fiction, memoir, whatever you want to write. All levels of experience are welcome and no advance sign-up is necessary. 
NY Writers Coalition, has gotten involved with the Hurricane Sandy recovery effort by way of what we do best: writing workshops. In response to the storm, we decided to provide a space for people to find community and write in a supportive environment. So, we launched a handful of new free, drop-in workshops last week in shelters, libraries, and other community spaces and have more in the works in Red Hook and Coney Island. 
The writing group is facilitated by a member of the community who also lives in Carroll Gardens, and we really hope that this will be a great space for folks to get together and do a little writing and storytelling.
