So ever since Fiddlers Hearth closed, I have been trying to get back in touch with someone at Dominican Joe to set aside tables again. The person who had been setting them up has stopped (right when we tried to move), which left a gap. Only just now has the new person replied to set up tables for this Saturday. So, I am going to go for it. Sorry for the late notice.
Since it's short notice, I'll do it as a write-in. All are welcomed; I'll send out the invitation next email. We can also spend some time talking about sites in general and discussing any other places to try (the main criteria being city-centrality, parking, and availability).
Austin Writers is a meant as a source of positive reinforcement and community for writers of all kinds in the Austin area. During a regular month, we have 2 meetups; one in South Austin & one in North Austin. (I am in the process of expanding that to 4 meetups a month.) These will be discussion based where people bring examples of their current writing for sharing (read silently) and to spark discussion.
The goal is simply to help foster a community of writers in Austin, and provide continuity to keep us writing as we go through daily life. It is not a heavy-duty workshop type thing. Absolutely all writing styles and approaches are welcomed; fiction, non-fiction, journaling, experimental.
Requested Donation to cover fees: $3 per Meetup. Thanks for helping us thrive!
Please Note! Austin Writers Meetup focuses on Austin and the central urban area. There is also a Round Rock Writers Group, run by different folks:
