Join us at 9:00 am on June 12, 2021, for a Welcome Back Party to celebrate our return to live meetings for the Caprock Writers and Illustrators Alliance!

 

Food, door prizes, games, writing contests, and real-live humans to talk to!

Don't be shy, we're all skittish from being cooped up for the last 15 months too!
