Details & Online Registration

Program information

Join us in our new Kirkridge writing circle facilitated by Dr. Juanita Kirton. Our writing group we started in Spring of 2020 was wildly successful and we want to create a new space for writers of any and every level; however space is limited.  This series offers an opportunity to build greater community and more deeply empower our own voices as writers. Our time together will consist of a writing prompt, time to write, and optional sharing with the group.

Dates are Tuesdays from 5:30-7pm EDT on:

  • August 4th
  • August 18th
  • September 1st
  • September 15th 

To register for the series, click here.

We are asking for a $40 registration fee to cover the costs of this entire 4 part series.  But do not let financial need be a barrier, please join us and pay whatever you can afford.  Donations above the registration fee will be gratefully appreciated to help Kirkridge offer this and other valuable programs to our growing community.   You can give here: www.kirkridge.org/give
