The Muskoka Writing Circle

The Muskoka Writing Circle is a vibrant and supportive group of amateur and professional writers that meets monthly. The purpose of the group is to encourage both new and more seasoned writers to achieve their writing goals through positive critiquing.

The Circle meets on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 9:00 am to 11:30 am. We are sorry to announce that due to the lack of appropriate program space in our library, the Writing Circle will no longer be able to hold their monthly meetings at the Library. However, the group will meet at the Centre for Active Living. For more information please contact Ian at livseyi @aol.com We do look forward to hosting special readings from the Writing Circle, so be sure to check our website for those events.
