We’re only here for a minute. We’re here for a little window. And to use that time to catch and share shards of light and laughter and grace seems to me the great story. ~ Brian Doyle

Our next theme for UUWriters is The Path of Delight. Sharpen your quills, pens, or laptops, and join on us on Thursday, June 15 at 1:00 PM or 7:00 PM. All are welcome. To kickstart your writing, prompts will be emailed to you. The packet includes poems and songs for inspiration. Take as little as 15 minutes to write something to bring to the workshop on Zoom. Rather than critique the work, we discuss how we connect to it. For questions and the packet, contact Sari at saribodi@gmail.com
