The MGPL Writers Workshop is for writers who want to share their works in progress and support other writers in drafting, revising, and finishing manuscripts, essays, poems, or any other type of writing. Readings can be in any genre or format. Writers of any level or professional aspiration are welcome.
The workshop is held on the first Wednesday evening of every month from 7–8:30pm in the Baxter Room. If you have questions or would like to receive email updates about this group, contact Chad Comello, Adult Services Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-929-5108.
