Return to Remote Meetings

Zoom Meetings to Resume Wednesday, December 15

Due to an uptick in Covid cases in Kenosha and the emergence of the Omicron variant, we are suspending all in-person meetings and switching to Zoom until further notice.

While we’re sad not to meet in person, Zoom allows our writer friends who live at a distance to participate in meetings. We’ll continue with our monthly Open Meetings on the third Wednesday of every month at 6:30 pm. The Zoom link will be posted on this page one week prior to each meeting. We hope you’ll join us!
