Community Writing Group | Beyond the Nest (Rochester)

Community Writing Group

Join us for a free, collaborative, supportive writing community every Saturday.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately. If you have a question about the activity itself, please contact the organization administrator listed below.

Facilitated by Jessica L. Pavia, our writing group is focused on encouragement, guidance, generosity, and accountability. Drop in weekly, monthly, or as the spirit moves. Writers at all levels and in all genres are invited to share work, receive respectful feedback, try out new prompts, or use the time to work quietly in a group setting.

Rochester native Jessica L. Pavia’s creative nonfiction work has appeared in Electric Literature, Longreads, Catapult!, Roxane Gay’s The Audacity, The Columbia Journal, Breadcrumbs Magazine, and elsewhere. She also writes a bi-weekly column for Write or Die Magazine.

Free & open to the public, ages 18 & above | In person at Writers & Books

1 – 2 pm, Saturdays, starting April 15, 2023
