Itching to join the many writers who have called Suffolk home?  Some of today's most popular authors have found their muse in our county, Kurt Vonnegut, Nelson DeMille, Antoine de Saint-Exupery and Thomas Harris among them. 

Joining a writers workshop is a great way to meet other talented people and gain practical insights into the writing and publishing process. Sharing your ideas and working with fellow writers gives you access to feedback and perspectives that you will find invaluable.
