Free Saturday writing group

September 2, 2023 @ 10:30 am

(For location – see this site.)

This is a FREE, WEEKLY, IN-PERSON active writing group grounded in the Amherst Writers and Artists method. It is a safe, critique-free space.

WRITERS OF ALL LEVELS WELCOME. Whether you haven’t picked up a pen since high school or are a pro, you are welcome. 16 and up. For more on AWA method go to

THE COVID RULES: To protect our immunocompromised writers, we ask that all participants be vaccinated against COVID and, if eligible, receive timely COVID variant boosters. We follow the King County Health Department recommendations regarding masking, OR if any member of our group requests it, we will all wear masks even if KCHD does not recommend it. Please bring a mask just in case. We have extras. Thank you for doing your part to protect members whose medical concerns or treatments make COVID infection potentially deadly.



1-3 writing sessions within each 3-hour meeting. Expect to be writing for approximately 2 hours. Writing prompts will be offered as a starting point, use them or follow your own muse. After each writing session, those who wish are invited to read their work aloud for encouraging, positive response. We do not critique each other’s writing, but instead support the work and the effort.

    This is very hard to find how to sign up for this.

    Click on the meetup link in the announcement. That will take you to a page where you can sign up.

    Is there a way I can attend without registering for meetup? I am reducing my internet footprint.
    I am okay with meeting a member at a public location beforehand for vetting.
