The event will be held at the Mission Branch Library in the Community Room, 3861-B Mission Ave, and light refreshments will be served. This event is open to the public and all writers are welcome, regardless of genre or experience. Sign-ups are required at the start of the event and participants will be allotted 5-minute slots to present their material.
