Creative Society Recommends

Creative Society Writing Circle is a collective of screenwriters, playwrights and poets who have all been mentored by Creative Society. We meet every other Tuesday to share work, exchange writing advice and develop new ideas. We start each session with recommendations for things to watch, read and listen to while we're all stuck at home!
