THE COVID RULES
At this time, due to concern about new COVID variants, the in-person group is limited to vaccinated persons. I hold no judgement regarding any writer’s vaccination status. However I am a birth worker by day and to protect you and my high risk clients I ask non-vaccinated writers to join us via Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom log in at registration. We are eager to encourage your writing and hear your voice. In in-person writers are asked to wear a mask while inside the facility. Those sitting outside are welcome to go mask free. Eventually this too shall pass, but let/s take care of each other.

THE COVID RULES
At this time, due to concern about new COVID variants, the in-person group is limited to vaccinated persons. I hold no judgement regarding any writer’s vaccination status. However I am a birth worker by day and to protect you and my high risk clients I ask non-vaccinated writers to join us via Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom log in at registration. We are eager to encourage your writing and hear your voice. In in-person writers are asked to wear a mask while inside the facility. Those sitting outside are welcome to go mask free. Eventually this too shall pass, but let/s take care of each other.

THE COVID RULES
At this time, due to concern about new COVID variants, the in-person group is limited to vaccinated persons. I hold no judgement regarding any writer’s vaccination status. However I am a birth worker by day and to protect you and my high risk clients I ask non-vaccinated writers to join us via Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom log in at registration. We are eager to encourage your writing and hear your voice. In in-person writers are asked to wear a mask while inside the facility. Those sitting outside are welcome to go mask free. Eventually this too shall pass, but let/s take care of each other.

THE COVID RULES
At this time, due to concern about new COVID variants, the in-person group is limited to vaccinated persons. I hold no judgement regarding any writer’s vaccination status. However I am a birth worker by day and to protect you and my high risk clients I ask non-vaccinated writers to join us via Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom log in at registration. We are eager to encourage your writing and hear your voice. In in-person writers are asked to wear a mask while inside the facility. Those sitting outside are welcome to go mask free. Eventually this too shall pass, but let/s take care of each other.

THE COVID RULES
At this time, due to concern about new COVID variants, the in-person group is limited to vaccinated persons. I hold no judgement regarding any writer’s vaccination status. However I am a birth worker by day and to protect you and my high risk clients I ask non-vaccinated writers to join us via Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom log in at registration. We are eager to encourage your writing and hear your voice. In in-person writers are asked to wear a mask while inside the facility. Those sitting outside are welcome to go mask free. Eventually this too shall pass, but let/s take care of each other.

THE COVID RULES
At this time, due to concern about new COVID variants, the in-person group is limited to vaccinated persons. I hold no judgement regarding any writer’s vaccination status. However I am a birth worker by day and to protect you and my high risk clients I ask non-vaccinated writers to join us via Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom log in at registration. We are eager to encourage your writing and hear your voice. In in-person writers are asked to wear a mask while inside the facility. Those sitting outside are welcome to go mask free. Eventually this too shall pass, but let/s take care of each other.

THE COVID RULES
At this time, due to concern about new COVID variants, the in-person group is limited to vaccinated persons. I hold no judgement regarding any writer’s vaccination status. However I am a birth worker by day and to protect you and my high risk clients I ask non-vaccinated writers to join us via Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom log in at registration. We are eager to encourage your writing and hear your voice. In in-person writers are asked to wear a mask while inside the facility. Those sitting outside are welcome to go mask free. Eventually this too shall pass, but let/s take care of each other.
