WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17 at 6 PM
The MWPA’s GATHER encourages members (and their friends!) to meet and mingle with fellow members in one of fifteen (15!) 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.
BETHEL’s Gather now meets in GREENWOOD.
*If you are an MWPA member interested in hosting GATHER in your community—and your community doesn’t neighbor one of our existing locations—please email MWPA’s Hannah Perry at email@example.com and include a couple suggestions for a venue in your area.
