As the longest night of the year approaches, we’ll gather in the evocative atmosphere of Inspirations Gallery where we’ll light our Solstice candles and write our way into the darkness. Inspired by the spirit of the Winter Solstice, we’ll work from prompts and props, focused exercises and timed writing in classic writing practice style. All writers are welcome no matter what your experience or genre. Just bring your notebook and pen or your laptop and let the Muse take over.
