Alice Osborn

Write from the Inside Out

Book Club

Wonderland Book Club, facilitated by Alice Osborn, NC Writers Network Co-Sponsor

Join us the last Friday of every month to discuss literary fiction and selected nonfiction. I read like a writer, so this group is especially attuned to aspiring writers. I believe you need to read a lot of good books before you can write them!

Where: We meet at Center for Excellence 3803-B Computer Dr., Raleigh, NC 27609 Here’s the MeetUp Link

When: 10 am - 11:45am  It’s FREE! Please e-mail Alice if you’re interested in joining us.


“I definitely gained value from Alice Osborn’s memoir workshop. Alice is a teacher with the gift of creating a safe environment for sharing personal writing. She gives good specific feedback and her writing exercises are very effective and educational. Once you’ve done the writing exercise, you definitely understand the lesson very well. I will continue to take classes from Alice.”—Elaine Bayless, Raleigh, NC
