Spiritual Expressions

Second and fourth Monday of the month, 7:00-8:30 p.m. in Room 106

If you haven't yet given yourself permission to write, are a writer who is experiencing writer's block, or if you would benefit from companionship on your journey of personal growth, come along as we awaken the writer and storyteller in each of us. All skill levels are welcome, from beginner to proficient.  During the monthly Sessions, group members listen to and discuss selected poetry, prose, or stories, learn poetic forms and writing techniques, and write from intriguing prompts. More discussion follows when group members volunteer to share their written responses. Because we do not critique, an atmosphere of support and acceptance prevails. Facilitated by Nessa McCasey.  For additional information, please contact her at  To visit the group's blog, please visit
