Come join us for WiVLA's beloved themed meeting, Circle of Five, this February. Members and non-members are welcome to this inspiring event. Bring a small sample of your work, written or visual, musical or movement, and share it within a small group of five. It’s a wonderful way to meet new friends, learn more about each other, and be inspired by creativity. If you do not have any creative work to share, come anyway and see what WiVLA is all about! Sitting in Archway’s art-filled space will only add to your inspiration. If you wish to bring a bottle of wine or a light snack, it would be appreciated. If you are curious about WiVLA and are considering joining, this is a great meeting to get introduced with!
TALA was formed in 1979 to meet the legal and accounting needs of artists and art nonprofit organizations. Services include lawyer and accountant pro bono assistance for artists, patent pro bono assistance for inventors, dispute resolution services, and educational programs for the artistic and business communities. Programs are designed to help participants apply sound business practices to protect intellectual property, advance careers, and develop income.

Writers' Book Club: Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Members-Only Event - Free for Writespace Members!
DATE: Saturday, December 3rd, 4:30 p.m.
PRICE: While the event is free, please RSVP by registering here. This event is exclusive to Writespace members.
Ever been to a book club composed solely of readers? It can be maddening to listen to the group act as if every book is perfect. As a writer, you long to dissect the book, to pull it apart and study character development, plot, pacing, sentence structure, and so on, but the readers around you look confused when you try to do this.
If you've ever been the lone writer in a book club, then you will feel deeply at home in this book club. Join us in the delightful journey of exploring not just a great story, but how great stories come to be.
At each writers' book club, we will discuss a book from a different genre. We encourage poets to be ready to discuss the latest thriller, speculative fiction writers to be ready to discuss a literary fiction classic, and so on--because it's good for our writing to be as versatile readers, writers, and thinkers as possible.
The book we will be discussing this time is the young adult novel Wonder by R.J. Palacio. If you haven't read a young adult novel since you were a young adult, now is the time to remember what you've been missing and discover what you can learn from this fascinating genre. Please read the book--or, as many pages as you possibly can, and, as you read, please consider or even take notes on aspects of craft, such as character development, plot, pacing, dialogue, diction, sentence structure, and every other magical component that goes into making good books.
Writers of all experience levels are welcome. This event is exclusive to Writespace members. For a complete list of membership benefits or to become a member, visit this link.
