About the Sausalito Writers' Circle

Looking for a supportive group to share your writing with? Ready to tackle that story, novel or poem? Interested in providing feedback to others? Whether you're an aspiring writer, a seasoned veteran, or somewhere in between, come join us for semi-monthly workshops in the City Hall Conference Room, just down the hall from the Sausalito Library.

Here's how it works: members submit up to 10 double-spaced, numbered pages (poets: 2 poems) in advance of each session, and our time together is then spent in offering productive, positive feedback to one another. The group typically meets twice a month, on Sundays from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m., in the City Hall Conference Room. Attendance is free.

Your host is recently relocated Sausalito resident, published author, and experienced workshop facilitator, Cindy Knoebel. If interested in attending, please join our Meetup group and RSVP.
