Great River Writes – Winona Writers Group

Do you like to write fiction, non-fiction, or poetry? Check out the Great River Writes – Winona Writers Group that meets every second Friday of the Month from 3:30-5:30pm in the Winona Public Library’s Youth Programming Room.

Each month you will receive writing prompts to work on and bring to the next meeting. Don’t like the prompts? Then make your own. Bring one page, single-spaced of your work to be critiqued at the meeting. The Library will make copies of your work to be passed out at the meeting.

Here are the writing prompts for the Friday, January 10th:

  1. January is named after the Roman god of doors, Janus, because this month is the door to the year. Janus represents all beginnings, and looks both ways, backwards and forwards. Write about a door opening or closing. This could be literal or figurative.
  2. Winter in Minnesota can be bleak; almost colorless. What color(s) are important to you? How does lack of color affect you? Describe a colorful or colorless landscape.

Great River Writes and the City of Winona are partners of the River Arts Alliance.
