We’re looking to include another day and/or time to our schedule. If you’re a writer who would like to participate but can’t make Tuesdays, please email Rachel Astarte Piccione at with suggestions for days and times that suit your schedule. With enough responses, we should be able to add another meeting time to our ongoing workshop. Please pass this message along to any writers who might be interested. Many thanks in advance.
