Freewrite Tuesdays at Sub Rosa!
Sub Rosa Bakery
620 N. 25th St., RVA 23223
1st & 3rd Tuesdays, 10:30-11:30am-ish
Need a push to get writing, or just need to get out of the house? We hear you! Come write with us at Sub Rosa on June 7 or June 21! This is a cozy and informal venue to freewrite and converse-- we believe writing isn’t necessarily a solitary sport, and that you never know what kind of poem might walk through the door. Although we're open to specialized topics and sharing, there is no formal critique or workshop agenda, and no RSVP required— simply show up & bring your writing utensils!
