The Moving Pens Writers’ Group

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

Facilitated by Kim Suhr, MFA


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. Our collegial atmosphere allows participants to feel comfortable sharing their work and confident that the feedback they 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 in collaboration with the MCW Medical Humanities Program.


Class is Full. Please contact Kim to be added to the waiting list.
