DETAILS: This is becoming a monthly thing! And we are so happy! Alex and Reuben return April 9 – that's a Friday night! – with Mischief, Magnificence & Marvels! Alex says, "Hello lovely people! This session, we’ll be playing around with Trickster energy, and how making marvelous mischief can be a part of our creative lives. Bring your favorite April Fool’s Day tales for a joyful round of writing, silliness, and celebration." Sign up here for your invitation.

No prerequisite required. If you've been with us before, welcome back! The day before the event, you will receive your invitation by email with your link to join and instructions about what to bring: something to write with, a sense of humor, and snacks.
