The Moving Pens Writers’ Group

MCW writers
Members of the inaugural Moving Pens group dig into a warm-up prompt.

This facilitated group is focused on helping you reach your writing goals in any genre. We begin with a brief prompt followed by thoughtful discussion of your pages-in-progress. In our collegial atmosphere you will feel comfortable sharing your work and confident the feedback you receive will be offered with a generous spirit. Not all participants have publication as a goal, but those who do have seen success in our short time as a group.

Held at the Medical College of Wisconsin, the group is a collaboration between the MCW Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities Program and Red Oak Writing.
