    If you're interested in participating, please contact the host, Lorin Drexler with Gen Society, directly to reserve a spot to workshop your novel. There will be four spots available each month. If you'd like to attend and not workshop your writing, feel free to join any of the upcoming dates. This workshop is free and open to the community.
    - Each week we will have 4 or less participants to workshop.
    - Each participant will bring in 4 printed copies of their work.
    - To ensure there is enough time to workshop everyone in the group, we will keep the maximum at 3 pages double-spaced per piece.
