The event is held at Jirani Coffee House every fourth Friday of the month from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. Please revise work to a PG-13 rating prior to reading!
Write by the Rails Publications
An anthology, New Departures reflects the diverse ideas and creative work of Write by Rails's membership. In this first WbtR publication, members offer poetry, fiction, nonfiction and even a merge of genres.
The product of Write by the Rails's first Rising Writers Workshop for young adults, No Additional Postage Necessary inspires, surprises, amuses and raises some eyebrows, too.
In this unique anthology, Write by the Rails showcases Twitter-friendly writings by 22 members and friends who took part in a three-month social media campaign. #BackOnTrackNow serves as a reflection of the times and an effort to change the discourse of social media.
