Lit!Commons Info Session

If you're curious about the Loft's Lit!Commons program, come to this informal information session to find out more! In this session, we'll discuss an overview of the platform, tour each of the pathways and community spaces, and leave time for Q&A about how your writing and goals may fit in. A few of the teaching mentors will briefly share an overview about what to expect in their spaces and be available to answer any questions. It is free and open to the public, and it takes place online, via Zoom. This will be a recorded event. Please pre-register for this event. Join the conversation!
