Did you finish college and think, "I really should've been an English major"? Or, did you not get the chance to go to college, and wish that you could experience a community of people eager to learn together? Do you fantasize about being accepted into a full-time funded MFA so you can quit your job and just read and write all the time?

Come join your fellow literary dreamers in a new group at the Read/Write Library! We'll meet weekly to enjoy community and the satisfaction of self-education. Craft your own reading and writing plan and share it with like-minded individuals who are working towards similar goals. See you there!

Facilitated by Wednesday Quansah, this program is what you make of it. Bring your hopes, your dreams, a notebook or two, and your own ideas for how to build a supportive, creative, accountable space together.

Read/Write Library is wheelchair accessible and all restrooms are gender-neutral. For additional questions, please email
