Upcoming Communiversity Sessions!


“Someday I’m going to write . . .“
How about now?  Whether writing is something you’ve put on the back burner, or something you engage in often, you are welcome.  The focus of this group is on the joy of creative expression.  We will not critique.  Using writing prompts, you are free to use any format you wish:  fiction, poetry, autobiographical, nonfiction.
Safe, friendly environment.  Take time out from the pandemic and tap into the joy of creative expression!
Krystala Kalil holds an M.A. in Psychology and Counseling, and an M.A. in Human Development. She is a former psychotherapist.
Krystala is currently an educator, and founder of igniting Powerful Women. She has facilitated writing groups for women for several years.
