Effective on Friday, March 13, the Loft's physical space will be closed until further notice.
All scheduled paid events, free events, and critique groups and meetings will meet virtually instead of in person.
Group leaders will contact group members. If you've paid for an upcoming event, you'll receive an email with instructions on how that event will run.
We'll be adding several online-only events.

Thanks to Kristin Russo for her awesome craft chat on Tuesday, July 16. Here's the presentation in convenient video form!
Our Next Anthology: FRIENDS AND ANEMONES!
We are going to publish another anthology! This one will be called FRIENDS AND ANEMONES, and it will be another illustrated collection of poems for children. Our first poetry anthology, AN ASSORTMENT OF ANIMALS, consisted of text and illustrations all about animals. For our next collection, we sought illustrations and poems about the ocean, the creatures who live there, and the beauty and conservation of the sea. Visit our anthology page for more information!
Here are some Lofters reading aloud from our first anthology!
Check Out The Calendar!
Besides these great upcoming programs, our critique groups and think tanks are in full swing. Make sure to check out the calendar and come to any of our critique group and think tank meetings.
