Join Chris Bailey for a monthly co-working virtual social for members living in Central Virginia on the first Tuesday of the month at 1:00 pm. Participants will chat and share their writing or illustrating goals for the day and then do two 30-minute timed work sprints, checking in with the group in between work sessions. It’s a great way to meet other creatives living in your area and get some writing or illustrating done, too. Writing doesn’t have to always be solitary! For members only. The session is free. Please register below. ** A link to attend this Zoom social will be emailed to the group on the morning of the meeting. 1-2:30 pm. FREE.
