These are some pictures of our events and get-togethers. They cover a variety of what we’re all about, from pictures of meetings, our annual writing retreat, holiday and summer parties, and special events like our documentary screening in 2016 and various members at RWA’s national conference.

Writing Retreats

These pics make it look like all we do is eat, but that’s totally not true. Most of the time, the only sound you hear is the clicking of keys.
