The Ankeny Writers Workshop meets the third Saturday of each month at the Ankeny Kirkendall Public Library. The library doors open at 9:00 on Saturdays. We start promptly at 9:15, ending by 11:30. The monthly workshops are open to all writers from beginners to professionals. Each month’s meeting will present a new opportunity for learning from practicing writers, colleagues and/or others who support writing and publication.
