CreativiTea Alaska

CreativiTea Alaska is a weekly casual gathering for creative writers ages of all skill levels in the Mat-Su Valley. Members include diverse wordsmiths from a variety of genres and cultural backgrounds. Every Monday evening they meet at a different location in Palmer or Wasilla for tea, cookies, conversation, and quiet communal writing time in a peaceful, judgement-free setting. Sharing work is optional.

Throughout the year, CreativiTea Alaska also hosts a variety of free and low cost group outings, social events, and craft workshops.  To learn more and join a meetup, follow them on Instagram at @CreativiTea_Alaska and join their Facebook group.

Writers with Grace

Writers with Grace explores the joys and challenges of writing as Christians, both from and for their faith, and provides a space to network with other writers and readers. They share writing projects, exchange resources and ideas, hone skills, provide feedback, and offer opportunities to expand and share writing talents. Christian writers in all genres are welcome. They meet in person on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6 p.m. at ChangePoint Mat-Su, 615 E. Strathclyde Lane in Wasilla, and may start to stream meetings online. To learn more, visit
