Round Table Discussion: CRAFT

August 25, 2018


Sacramento Valley Rose has a ton of knowledgeable members and this month we decided to showcase that with a round-table discussion on all things craft! Through a series of general discussion topics, each member will have a chance to show their writing strengths and learn from each other to bolster their weaknesses. Bring your own expertise, your notebooks, and your questions for a fun morning of digging deeper into your own works in progress. Bounce ideas off other members or come to listen to the sage collective advice of our members. We look forward to seeing you there!
