Sharpening the Quill

Do you need a quiet place to write
or can’t find the time?

Make no more excuses. Step away from distractions and write with fellow writers. Build your collection of writing samples and work. Compile your collective works. Come when you can and write what you please.

Writers are welcome to:

  • Journal
  • Blog
  • Write short stories
  • Develop a play or write a script
  • Write non-fiction or fiction
  • Write memoir or biography

There IS a time and a quiet place on campus to commit to write — all you have to do is come.
