Southside Writers is a group of writers with diverse writing interests who meet Saturdays at the Wescott Library in order to offer and receive substantive critique and feedback on their work. We welcome writers of all ages and all levels of expertise.
Southside is open to the public. There are no membership fees and no requirements other than a genuine desire to improve your work and the work of others in a positive and supportive environment. Discussion centers on writing in all its myriad aspects, including creation, technique, publication, and marketing.
Location The Wescott Library is located at 1340 Wescott Road in Eagan. Please refer to the Wescott Library website for map and written directions, or contact them by phone at 651-450-2900.

Today's cliches are tomorrow's axioms.
It's the writer's job to dance with the reader, and make sure they don't stumble.
