The Community with Citizens Scholars @ Online

Come join us at our weekly writing nights! We know that trying to be creative while being at home can be tough, especially for members of the LGBTQ+ community. so we’re offering a calm space for queer writers to hang out.

Every Thursday night at 7 pm through November and December (excluding Thanksgiving), we’ll host a Zoom room with chill music and good vibes. We’ll develop a writer’s playlist, work on poetry, short stories, essays, and maybe help each other get over a fierce writer’s block.
