In-Person at Gemini Ink
We are working on our official public announcement; however, we wanted you to be the first to know that after approximately 25 years of volunteer service to Gemini Ink’s Open Writer’s Lab, Dario Beniquez has retired from facilitating this Lab! We will sorely miss his presence, but we are hopeful that our community of writers will continue to participate and grow with us.
Currently, you are welcome to join our in-person Open Writer’s La
