Ongoing Workshops:


What is it:  A new writer’s group for women ages 40 and over begins Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 1:30 PM.  I’m Nancy Hughett and I’m an active member of the Morning Coffee Art & Writing Group with Maryellen Burns.  I am starting a monthly writing group for women ages 40-ish and over.  We invite practiced writers who write fiction and/or creative nonfiction.  Poetry is welcome but not the focus of the group. 

            When:  1:30 PM – 3:30 PM - Saturday, February 20

            Where:  email me your contact information at and a little bit about yourself and what you are writing and I’ll send you the address.

            Why:  Mutual & constructive support for women writers

A little bit about me:  For several years I’ve been working on a speculative fiction novel that explores women’s roles, gender identity, religion (and spirituality) and politics.  I have a number of unfinished short stories.  I also write poetry.  I’ve written for many years and am focused now on the challenge of finishing things.

Please contact me by e-mail at if you are interested, and please also give me your phone number.   I will send you the location (my house). 

Please note that my e-mail shows up as ‘Rick Codina.’  He is my spouse, and we share an e-mail address.
