Writers In The Round

Wednesdays, 7 PM to 8 PM

Traditionally, a "Writers Round" is a gathering of songwriters who take turns singing their songs.

Richard Winham puts a twist on this idea by gathering writers of all stripes - singers, songwriters, poets, novelists, and storytellers - to sit and share their experiences.

He handpicks the writers - inviting them to discuss their own - and each other's writing styles and methods.
