Please join us for a creative writing session at OPRF Museum. The inaugural meeting will be at 10 a.m. on Thursday February 16.

We’ll open with a brief presentation of an item from the Museum’s collection—an artifact, a photograph, a letter, or other piece of ephemera. Participants will then have free time to start writing a creative piece based on the item. It might be a short story, an essay, a meditation, or perhaps a poem. At the end of the session, writers will have a few minutes to share their writing with the group if they wish.

Be sure to bring a pen and notebook, a laptop, a tablet, or whatever supplies you will need. This session will run approximately an hour and fifteen minutes and is free to all participants.
