November 18th *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.)

    Just finished the first draft of my novel! Thanks so much for all the support and feedback you guys have given me! I'm sure I'll need more as I start the revision process. It's nice to have the opportunity to celebrate (and commiserate) with such a talented group of writers :)

    I took myself off the waiting list because I made other plans for Monday night, but I look forward to joining the group another night. I have an M.F.A. in poetry but have written little in the last ten years, have started putting some work together again.

      Thanks for changing your RSVP! Even if you're on the waiting list it helps. Hope to see you at a future meeting.

    Looks like I am on the wait list. If my RSVP is too late for Nov 18, will I be able to attend the following meetup?

    November 11, 2013

    • Meghan

      You are first on the waiting list so there is a good chance you may get in as things tend to come up last minute. Meetup will notify you if you get bumped up to a yes so stayed tune closer to the date. Also, if you make other plans please change your RSVP to a no so someone else can be bumped if a spot opens up. The next meetups will be in December and I should have those posted soon. The RSVPs will then open one week prior to the meeting. Thanks.

    • Grady L.

      Looks like I am in. Looking forward to meeting your group.

      November 13, 2013

  • Patrick C.

    How many people are allowed at each meeting? Is the number based on the seats in the meeting room at G.J., or does the Meetup use the the room in back?

    November 12, 2013

    • George H.

      A work conflict has come up and I cannot attend after all. I know at least one other person wanted to go so he can take my spot. Enjoy. Wish I could go.

      November 13, 2013

    • Meghan

      Hi George, please make sure you switch your RSVP to a no so the spot will actually open up. On the right hand side beside the meeting title it should say your RSVP: Yes. Under that it says change, click on that and select no. Thank you.
