Lauzun Writers' Group

The Writers’ Group meets every second Wednesday in Lauzun. The existing group is English language but we are interested in forming a French writers group if we find there is enough interest.

The goal of the group is to learn about creative writing and to get feedback on creative writing projects. 

The meetings are divided into two categories:

  • Information/learn/exercises
  • Feedback on written work
