Virtual Writers’ Café

Pour a cup of coffee or tea and join us at 9:30 am – 11:00 am for a meetup with fellow writers the first Saturday of each month (except for the May meeting which will occur on the second Saturday, May 14 and the September meeting due to the Labor Day weekend). Hosted by long-time LSW member Gail Trowbridge, we’ll chat about our current writing projects, learn about upcoming events and opportunities for writers, and share the ups and downs of our writing lives. Whether you’re a seasoned writer or a newbie, we’d love to have you join us.

The May Writers’ Café will focus on “Submitting Your Work.” We’ll explore submitting to contests, print and online journals and zines. During our discussion, we’ll create a list of places to submit, both regional and beyond. We’ll also discuss how to deal with rejection and not get discouraged.

Upcoming Dates:

  • May 14 – Note the change in date for this month
  • The Writers’ Café will pause during June, July and August
  • September 10 (one week later due to Labor Day weekend)

This event is free and membership is not required.

  • Register for each event by emailing  
  • You will receive an email with a Zoom link close to the event.

Registration Deadline for the next gathering is Friday, the day before the event by noon.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
