Yes, yes, yes! Come and write! The Hideout is at 1354 W. Wabansia in Chicago. I even suspect that an electric typewriter will make an appearance.
And if you're in California, consider joining up with Write to Delight. They meet the second Thursdays of the month. Their next meeting is the 10th! Remember kids, invovlement earns Inklings. Want some? You've got to come out and play!
