Take some time for your writing while you Shelter in Place. The CLA Writers Group challenges writers to experiment with daily writing, online community, and supportive accountability. Participants will commit to writing every day for 10 days for at least 30 minutes. We’ll have prompts, timed exercises, and sharing. Finish a story you’ve started or free-write your way to something new.


When the 30 minutes are up, participants will post their word count and take a moment to support other writers in the group by commenting on their progress. Each session takes place on Zoom at 7PM.


Find inspiration and energy writing in virtual community!


We're excited to announce that our host for 5/14 and 5/15 is Mighty Mike McGee!

He has toured very extensively throughout United States, Canada and Europe. Since 2002, he’s covered several hundred thousand miles performing his brand of poetry and humor. McGee has been featured on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, CBC Radio and Television, and NPR’s Snap Judgment. He was one of the first Americans to perform spoken word at the University of Paris, la Sorbonne in 2005. He was appointed Poet Laureate of Santa Clara County (Silicon Valley) for 2018 & 2019.
