LILA hosts a network of writers’ groups for its members that meet on the second Thursday of each month from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Upper Lance Hall of Circular Congregational Church. Writing is a solitary activity: getting feedback for works-in-progress is essential to every writer’s career. This is one of the benefits of membership in LILA, so join LILA and then join us at our Writers’ Groups nights, one of the many ways in which LILA serves the Lowcountry literary community.
