Ever wanted to be a writer?

Now is the time to try it out.

The Suffolk Art League, in cooperation with the Art Center @ 319 in Smithfield and the Suffolk Museum, will hold a “Creative Conversation” titled “Literary Forms: a conversation about writing” at the Suffolk Museum, 118 Bosley Ave., on Oct. 23 beginning at 7 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public.

Writers in any genre and readers are invited to join for a dialogue about the art of writing with colleagues. Participants are encouraged to bring pieces they have tried writing, including their good writings and challenges. They will be able to bring them to the table as well as a short piece of writing to share and obtain input from fellow writers.

Facilitators will be on hand to help guide the conversation.

Reservations are requested but not necessary to attend.

This program is part of Hampton Roads regional celebration of Arts and Humanities Month. Coordinated by the Cultural Alliance of Greater Hampton Roads, Creative Conversations will be held during October in cities across the region on a variety of topics.
