Join us on the first Monday of every month ONLINE until the COVID19 pandemic restrictions are lifted.


Our memories are too important to let a global pandemic get in the way of preserving and sharing them. Until the libraries open again, we will meet online. Prep your own light refreshments and stories and settle in at your computer, iPad or smartphone. Share and critique writing in the first person with like-minded people. Sign up on arrival to read on a first-come, first-served basis, and receive group feedback. Listeners welcome as well as readers.

When: First Monday of every month, 6-8pm

Where: Join me via my Zoom platform. Here’s the link for 2021 salons: https://zoom.us/j/399127706

No advance registration required.

Refresh Your Expressive Writing Skills

Presented by Story Circle Online

Refresh your knowledge about writing effective sentences, paragraphs and essays of various types. We’ll review the most common grammar problems seen by professional editors, consider what makes for strong essays, and prepare to write features, persuasive appeals, and personal experiences. This course is ideal for anyone who needs a “brush-up” for work, school, or personal satisfaction.

Over four weeks we’ll explore fundamentals of writing at the level of sentence, paragraph, and essay. We will mix the “micro” skills—punctuation, sentence structure, and paragraph development—with the “macro” skills—developing essays in a variety of genres, for a variety of audiences and purposes. If you’d like to write feature articles, persuasive appeals, or compelling personal experience essays, this course will help you feel more confident in your skills.

When: This 4-week workshop meets Thursday afternoons, 3-5pm Central, from June 3 through June 24
Where: Online (Zoom)
Fees: SCN Member: $128.00, non-Member: $160.00
