WEDNESDAY, MAY 17 at 6 PM
The MWPA’s GATHER encourages members (and their friends!) to meet and mingle with fellow members in one of seventeen (17!) locations around Maine for camaraderie and conversation. There is no agenda to GATHER besides getting together with your community of fellow writers to talk writing, reading, and life.
While GATHER events are not open readings, manuscript exchanges, organized writing-prompt sessions, they are opportunities for literary-minded folks to meet and plan any of those things, and more!

There are no Gather meet-ups in these locations this month, but we hope they’ll return soon!
