May 20th*North* Weeknight Discussion Meetup

Our new schedule has us meeting four times a month, twice each in North Austin and South Austin. Meetings last 2.5-3 hours.

We'll start the meeting off by reading works  (silently) from those that have brought something to share then we'll take turns discussing them. If you want to bring a piece to share please bring at least 4-5 copies and keep it between 2-4 pages in length (under 2,000 words). From there if time allows we will branch into a discussion of topics related to writing.

About the meeting fee, Meetup charges organizers a fee to run the group. So, the suggested donation is to help me cover the costs of running the group. Anything you can donate helps but we won't kick you out if you can't spare a few bucks. In addition to the meetup fee Genuine Joe charges a fee for the room but they let us pay for it in purchases. So, please try to buy something if you can & tell them you are with the group so they can count it towards the room fee. (If you can't afford both just make a purchase since I'll end up owng GJ money anyway if we don't meet the minimum.)

      It's okay. You may have been bumped at the last minute. Just make next time if you are on the waiting list and can't make it you change your RSVP to a no or meetup will automatically bump you up to a yes in the order you are on the wait list. Thanks!

    I am sorry. A little emergency came up that I have to take care. I will be there tomorrow night for the writing session though!

      Hi Deb, there is no writing session tomorrow night with this group. You may be thinking of Sit Down, Shut Up and Write, which is another meetup group.

      Are there writing sessions for this group?

    If I get bumped up from the waiting list will they let me know or do I need to keep checking back?

      I'm pretty sure there's an email. Probably won't hurt to check though, people often drop the day of when they realize their evening is going to be busier than they thought.

      Yes, meetup should send you an e-mail so you should be checking your e-mail but as Tim said it wouldn't hurt to check here as well. Since you are first on the waiting list you could also try showing up in case we have any no shows. However, that room is a bit of a tight fit so if all 12 people do show up we may or may not be able to make room.

    Sorry Meghan... I have to stay late for a patient Mon. I'll definitely be at the next North! We all hope your schedule will accommodate continued mtgs!

    • Meghan

      I'm sure your patient appreciates you staying late for them. Thanks for changing your RSVP!

      May 19, 2013

  • Meghan

    Hey everyone, please remember to change your RSVP if you can no longer attend. Our waiting list is quite long! Thanks!
