Clear Lake Area Writers (CLAW)

Freeman Library has partnered with the Clear Lake Area Writers (CLAW), a free writers’ critique group, which meets on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month from 10 a.m.-12:00 noon (November and December, 2nd Saturday only). 

CLAW welcomes amateurs, hobbyists, semi-pros and pros across all genres, so if you have a piece of writing that you would like critiqued bring it in.  You can also help provide feedback to others who have brought in their own works.  CLAW also welcomes listeners, so feel free to join in even if you don’t have a piece of writing to critique.
