Workshops facilitated by author, Dorothy Bentley

Pop into the Okotoks Public Library and join other writers for a weekly writing time. The first half hour is to set goals, discuss writing projects, and get ready to work. The rest of the time is quiet writing. Taking time to write with others is a great way to experience collaborative creativity!

Meet new friends, accomplish your writing goals, and have fun doing it!
