Come energize, explore, and strengthen your writing practice in a safe, supportive space.  We'll build community, confidence, and a sense of power as we find our voices on the page.

Share snapshots of our life journeys as men

Read excerpts from established writers—Sedaris, Burroughs, and others and learn from their technique

Loosen up your writing muscles through a series of fun exercises

Get supportive feedback on your work

Develop an action plan to keep writing and to express your creativity in the worl

Write and get feedback in a fun supportive atmosphere

Learn tools to keep writing and to sharpen your stories

Stop procrastinating and start creating!
