OOPS! "Meetup tonight!"
I see our website for meetups is a bit persnickety. I meant to
send a personal welcome to all who have recently joined, but our site
must have recognized that I had seventh grade humour intent and
prohibited me from leaving comments. Our fartless leader Russ tells me
others have had similar experiences trying to post messages.
Soooooo.. Welcome all.
We meet tonight (wednesday) at the clubhouse, aka the towers that are A Word with You Press
, 802 So Tremont St, Oceanside, at about 6:15. Don't come early except if you plan to peel potatoes.
I barbeque with food ready about 6:30/6:45. Tonight will be
comfort food. Ham, chicken, mac and cheese.. Please bring a side dish
and a bottle of wine or Sam Adams. Pleased to say everyone got the memo
and no one brings 2 buck chuck anymore--that's for hacks! Literary
majors and literati (that would be us) are better writers depending on
the quality of the inebriate at hand. And Bud Lite is for harlequin
romance writers who dream of Favio posing for their book cover.
One new comer asked for a phony, some warm sex, and a group with a
sense of humo(u)r. This is definitely the place for her! Let's not disappoint her!
Plan to kick in $5+ to cover the main dish, coffee, bottles water, etc. Can someone bring some paper towels? We're out.
Bring 3 to 5 pages of your work, with at least ten copies to show
your contempt for trees and to let others read your work and write love
notes in the margins. Delighted to say we had another full house last
week, and we went overtime with so many readers. We have also caught
the attention of the UT, which no longer refers to itself as a
newspaper, but a "platform" Tell you all about it tonight.
And a Kuhl door prize, but you have to bring something to read to qualify!
Welcome all. See you tonight
Mark on your calendar the weekend of April 20th/21 for the Los Angeles
Times Festival of Books at the campus of USC. Details as the day
