Ongoing Programs

Once a month on a Friday at 5pm Club Members are invited to gather on our virtual platform on Slack for CHEERS: Club Cocktail Chats, conversations around topics ranging from podcasting to publishing to genre and craft. Join us monthly by following the link posted in the Cocktail Chats channel on the Member Slack. Members may contact Club Staff for info on how to get started on Slack. Not yet a Member?

The Club's popular bi-monthly podcast training is an introduction to podcasting for anyone looking to launch a show. The new online version includes tips for podcasting out of your home studio. Offered every other third Thursday of the month, Podcasting 101 is free to Members; otherwise $10.
What Cheer Writers Club’s Craft Curiosities series invites local writers to take a deep dive into a single aspect of literary composition—from narrative technique and grammar to presentation and revision—through a two-hour skills-building intensive guided by a local teaching artist.
