August 5th*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.)

    One of the best yet! Great writing, and a congenial interactive group. I couldn't wait to read the next story...and there were 10. Fun!

    Please make sure to change your RSVP ASAP if you can no longer attend tonight. That includes wait listers as you will be bumped up to a yes in the order you signed up if spots open up. Thank you!

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.
