And here we go! We are entering a decade of the EASTSIDE WRITING ROOM. Every Tuesday every week, every month, every season, every year since 2013. 


This year will be the most exciting time for our writing. Never ever before have each of us been so wise, so filled with life experiences, lessons learned, accomplishments … accomplished, and classic memories stored up (recalling names of acquaintances, what you had for dinner, and the location of that reminder list are not classic memories). 

We welcome adult writers (published, not published, just starting, resuming) of all genres to join us. This group is not for instruction or critiquing. It’s solely for talking about writing and writing the classic memories or the memories we plan to make- fiction or non. 


Commit and claim your time each Tuesday just for you and your writing. Set your writing intention with us each Tuesday morning. The group talk is solid motivation to write. No fee. Join us each week or as your time allows. RSVP requested for each week.


EVERY TUESDAY- ZOOM  11:30 AM-12:10 AM (MST) I email the Zoom link for our recurring meeting. A bit of writing talk, stating intentions for the day’s writing, and then writing on your own. 

HYBRID MEETING (In-person AND/OR Zoom- what a deal!) once a month. Gather at 11:15 AM to be set up to Zoom for a half hour at the host’s home (Eastside Tucson AZ) at 11:30 AM. Then write wherever you may be. Zoom has enabled us to keep our national status with members joining us from AZ, CO, MA, NC, CA, and NY.

Email check-ins encouraged at the end of your session or sometime after 1:00 PM.

Newbie? New to the group? RSVP to get the Zoom link and come when you can. Consistent connecting has positive effects in mood, attitude, perspective and that spills over into our writing. Interested writers may contact Ethel.

She retired from professional writing gigs after 30 years of teaching, coaching, editing, and gathering writers to publicly share their work. She is the author of Thinking of Miller Place, and Seedlings, Stories of Relationships. She writes to inspire, to connect with folks, and for the pure joy of it. Ethel enjoys sharing stories at Odyssey Storytelling, Artists Standing Strong Together, Zoom gatherings, and anywhere there’s a mic.
