Have others often said, “You should write that story down before it gets lost?” Do you like exploring thoughts and observations through poetry? Enjoy creating fiction? Or have you always wanted to write but been too timid to try it?

Then this creative writing group is for you. We’ll get together to share what we’ve written, and be supported in whatever genre we choose. We’ll self-direct our group, welcome occasional speakers, and write, write, write.

Repair Café Milton

Sun May 2  1:00 - 3:00 PM

Repair Café Milton is a neighbourhood initiative that promotes repair as an alternative to tossing things out. Members of our community can bring their broken items to fix them on the spot with the help of voluntary repairers. Repair Café Milton could use more handy volunteers in the area. Join us!

Repair Café Milton is looking for local residents with different skills who can be present as repair experts during the Repair Café meetings. We are especially looking for people who are handy with clothing/textile, bicycles, electrical appliances and furniture/wooden objects. Contact mary.oconnor@mpl.on.ca if you are interested in being a volunteer!
