In Participants’ Own Words

“Livingston Literaries is a delightful environment to share my writing in. I always look forward to going to the library and talking over our stories, ideas, and more.”

“I think that being able to talk with other writers and being able to work with them is a good way to improve my writing.”

“It has a great, friendly atmosphere. And it keeps me wanting to write!”

Past Events

“I enjoyed learning about memory and their role they play in Craig’s writing style, as well as the exercises we did! It was also great to hear from someone who’s published—a goal of mine.”
