WestWords Alumni 

Writers Group

WestWords Alumni Writers Group is an all inclusive monthly writers’ group for adult alumni of WestWords programs who are committed to further development of their craft open to poets and prose writers in all genres.

Meetings include:

  • Check in
  • 20 minute “shut up & write” session (share a favourite line)
  • 60 minute for feedback on a 500 word excerpt (3 writers volunteer to pre-send or read aloud and your writing colleagues provide encouraging critique)

The group is facilitated by WestWords Alumni Saurav Shrestha.
