July 24th *South* Weeknight Discussion Meetup

Our new schedule has us meeting four times a month, twice each in North Austin and South Austin. Wednesdays will be at Write by Night. 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 (2,000 words max). 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.

**Special Note** for this meeting we will be at our South meetup location, WriteByNight. The WriteByNight folks have generously offered to let us use their office space for our meetings. They will have coffee & maybe a few snacks on hand but if you want something special be sure to bring it as this won't be our usual coffee shop environment. Hopefully the trade off to gain privacy & quiet will be worth it. The also have open writing hours here from 4PM-8PM so feel free to stop by early if you need a quiet place to work.

    Variety of writers and genres, excellent turnout, thoughtful critiques. I wish we had had more time. I feel the writers at the end of the night received less feedback than when the discussion commenced. Though I did not submit writing for feedback, the practice of fast analysis will strengthen my own rewriting process.

    A truly inspiring experience, and that's what it's about, I assume! I think maybe less time could be spent on verbal critiques so we do not feel rushed on those critiques at the end. Just a thought. Very positive.

      Just saw your comment now. The RSVPs open one week prior to the meeting. There are still two spots open on the 24th so if you want to attend you should RSVP yes. You can observe, it's not required for you to share a piece at your first meeting, but we hope you'll still be willing to provide feedback to those that have. We're a pretty laid back group so come on out and check us out.

      I ask that you do RSVP if you plan on attending though because for space reasons we can only allow wait listers and extra people in if there is room. If a meeting is full and you are the wait list meetup will automatically bump you up at a yes in the order you RSVP if a spot opens up.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
