EVENT DESCRIPTION

Hone your writing skills and meet like-minded friends at the first meeting of Inkwell Beijing’s creative nonfiction group! We’ll take advantage of the balmy spring weather and bring a picnic to Chaoyang Park, where we’ll get to know one another, do some flash writing exercises inspired by our natural surroundings, and find out what creative nonfiction means to each of us. An informal workshop will follow the writing period for those who wish to share their work and receive small group feedback. 

*This event will take place outdoors, sitting on the ground, so we suggest you pack accordingly. A rain date is scheduled for the following Sunday, May 22nd. 

**The exact meeting location will be sent privately to participants around 24hrs in advance.
