a club for writers in the FdL area


Two FAW meetings:  Our writers club holds two different meetings each month.  The one described on this page is our regular meeting, which is held on the fourth Tuesday of each month.  (Except for our Christmas dinner, which is on the third Tuesday in December.)

Our other meeting is a workshop, which is held on the second Monday of each month.  No regular club business is conducted during our workshop sessions.  See our Writing Workshop page for details on those.

Previous:  Last month, Dr. Rebecca Foster gave a presentation about her two books and her work as a clairvoyant/medium.  12 people attended.  Thanks, Dr. Foster.
