A special writers’ workshop will be held Saturday, Feb. 22, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Ojai Art Center where longtime members of the writers’ group, Ojai Scribes, will share what they have learned about writing groups.

“We want to create an opportunity for authors of all genres to connect and sign up to form new writers’ groups,” said organizer Pat Hartmann. 
“Are you a writer or an aspiring writer who’d like to join a writers’ group in Ojai?” organizers asked. “Maybe you were the kid who checked out as many books from the library as you could carry and stayed up late, reading them in bed with a flashlight. Now you’ve got your own story to tell — words tumbling and rumbling in your head, eager to be penned on a page. But how? This might be the important step you’ve needed to awaken and embolden the latent writer within.
“Our own writers’ group, the Ojai Scribes, has been the gift that has helped inspire and transform our rough drafts into powerful prose and poetry over the past 17 years. We want the same for you.”
The cost is $5 to cover refreshments and expenses. The Ojai Art Center is at 113 S. Montgomery St., Ojai.
