Writers at Work: A Bookends University Book Club

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new IN-PERSON book club, Writers at Work!

Each month we will read a book on the craft of writing. Meetings will include an optional happy hour, with time to mix and mingle, get a drink from the Mini Bar, and do a little browsing or book buying. Happy hour will be followed by an hour of book discussion and guided, no-pressure writing prompts. You may leave with the start of a new story, essay, or poem!

Writers at Work is for ALL writers, from the experienced professional to the nervous beginner and everyone in between. Join us for inspiration, community, and a hands-on exploration of some of our favorite books on writing.
