The 2nd Saturday of each month in 2023, novelist and arts activist Ellen Morris Prewitt will be facilitating a writing group in the Writing Room of the famed 100 Men Hall in Bay St. Louis. The Hall is a rare African American landmark still standing on the Mississippi Blues Trail.

Writing gatherings will run 10:00am-1:00pm and include warmup exercises, mini-instruction, and two half-hour guided writing sessions.
