Beginning Saturday, Sept. 12, the statewide Maine Media Women will enjoy the creative ambience and inspiration of River Arts on Route 1 for its monthly roundtable meetings. These meetings will be completely free of charge, and there is ample free parking next to the gallery.

The roundtable meetings offer opportunities for women to share their creative work in a congenial, supportive and informal group setting. Artists and writers are encouraged to bring samples of their work, and anyone interested in supporting them is welcome to attend. MMW meetings are always open to the public.

The Sept. 12 meeting will run from 9:15 to 11:30 a.m., and attendees should plan to bring their own coffee, tea or snacks. River Arts is located at 241 Route 1, just north of N.C. Hunt Lumber.

Maine Media Women is a community of creative women who support and encourage each other’s creative work. For more information, call Genie Dailey at 549-5518 or Janice Lindsay at 563-6835.
