We strive to pro- vide a warm, supportive environment for positive and constructive feed- back. Members of this group can share many forms of creative writings in- cluding memoirs, poetry, short stories, essays and observations. Publication is always possible but not a primary goal. Writing can become a medium for self-reflection, self-expression and com- munication. No class on January 15. 60905 Mon Jan 8–Mar 19 10:45am-12:30pm SS $10R / $12NR SPECIAL EVENTS Bunko Tuesday Bunko is a dice game that's easy to learn.
