About the Feature:

The Writing Womb


Monday February 13, 20 and 27 from 7-9:30pm at the Common Cafe, Wilson St.
This is an accessible space with gender neutral washrooms.

The Writing Womb is a weekly, by-donation intentional writing space facilitated by Guelph Spoken Word.

If you need somewhere to write, to be a part of the writing community, quietly do other work, or just hang out and feel the creative juices palpably flowing, come on in.

Bring your laptop, notebook, script, scribbles, homework – whatever you want to work with. There will be a list of prompts posted if you’d like them and you are welcome to come and leave whenever you’d like.

THE PLAN: 1-hour, dedicated writing sessions followed by a 10-15 minute break where you can stand, chat, or continue to work (please be respectful if someone you really want to talk to seems focused on their work during the ‘break’).

Please sign up online for all date slots if you can – the purpose of this space is to help develop a regular writing commitment.
