The Writers' Exchange

Special Programs

Course Description

This program will take place online via Zoom.

If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.

— Toni Morrison

Do you enjoy writing but lack an audience for your writing, other than the cat? Would you like to meet other writers for stimulation and support? If so, consider the TMI Writers’ Exchange.

We will meet weekly for six weeks to read our writing and get gentle feedback from fellow scribes. Readings are limited to 10 minutes and may include journalism, memoir, short stories, or books. One of the hardest things about writing is sticking with it when you don’t have a deadline. By joining our group, you will have an incentive to come up with new material to delight and inform the other members each week.

Please note that this course has a maximum enrollment of 14 students.

Priority is given to students who pay upon registration.

For fully registered courses, a waiting list will be created. Should vacancies develop, those on the waiting list will be contacted on a first-come, first-served basis.
