    Join Tiffany Grantham on Monday, August 9, 2021 7-8:30 pm.

    Celebrate the First Anniversary of CWC's Social Write In

    Take 75-minutes to write and share. Bring your imagination, Tiffany provides prompts. She may spin instrumental music for your mind to riff on, offer pictures that take you down memory lane or set a scene for new character to play in. Following each prompt, there will be time for volunteers to read aloud.

    No pressure, no angst - just you, your writing, and your untamed creativity. Bring your own characters, write with a story in mind or let your thoughts dance across the page. Shake off the dust of the day and perhaps when you're done, Tiffany's prompts will help you create something that really jazzes you!

    Tiffany is a Children’s Service Specialist for Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, a short story-fiction writer, and secretary for CWC’s executive board. A native of Goldsboro, NC who has called Charlotte home for the past eight years, she has a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communications from North Carolina A&T State University, and an MFA in Writing from Lindenwood University. In her spare time, Tiffany collects books to add to her in-home library.
