Writers Circle

Open Writers' Circle with Mell


Date/Time by invitation- Zoom Video Conference


Join us for our monthly online Writers' Circle with Mell, open to emerging and established writers who seek encouragement, guidance, and community on the path to successfully achieving their writing goals. A "soft place to fall" for fellow writers to lean on one another, respecting a simple rule - what happens in the circle, stays in the circle!


Thank you, please check your email for confirmation!




The artists-in-residence fellowship program is open to emerging and established artists with focus on Visual Arts, Literature, and Poetry. 


It provides an opportunity to work in quiet and inspiring surroundings in the company of fellow artists, writers, novelists, and poets.


Curated with the intention of carefully suiting individuals to the unique environment and resources we can offer in Spoleto, Italy.
