Free Write! is the name given to an informal gathering of writers of ALL skill levels who meet to practice their writing in a friendly and nurturing atmosphere. The goal of the Free Writes! is to provide a place and an opportunity for people to have fun with their writing, to explore different genres, and to do this in the company of other writing enthusiasts. Each Free Write! is facilitated by a Rehoboth Beach Writers Guild member who has experience in teaching, writing and/or leading such groups. Participants write prose, songs, poetry and fiction, work on novels during free writes, and start short stories. Writing Prompts are often (but not always) designed to focus on a particular aspect of writing: the use of sensory details, the necessity of strong verbs, the craft of writing dialogue.

Bring paper and pen or a laptop and join us as often as you can. Free Writes are open to anyone who is interested. No RSVP required.
I take myself by surprise. Writing at a FreeWrite! is like throwing a surprise party for yourself. You never know what is going to spill out on your computer screen. Is an evil twin lurking in the machinery? Or is it my fingers that somehow acquire access to long forgotten memories, buried dreams and nightmares? No matter how many times I ask myself, Where did that come from, No matter how many times I think I should have run out of surprises by now–something unexpected jumps out from where it’s been lurking behind a load of unpacked boxes in the basement of my mind. I didn’t know I knew that, I think.”
