Austin Writers: Due to financial strain, I will be needing to let go of my Organizers-level meetup membership at the end of October. Austin Writers will continue: Meghan, who also has an Organizers-level membership, is going to take over administration.
She and I have talked, and I will continue to organize writers meetups through the group as a co-organizer. I am aiming to start again with a more casual arrangement at Cafe Caffeine, and projecting the next one to be either Oct 31 or the week after.
She is also fine with me continuing to do the more intensive workshops, and so I will. Thanks, Meghan. I will be re-working the material from the Worldbuilding workshops to focus on a repeatable workshop centered on dislodging writers' block through some of the techniques we explored in the worldbuilding workshops.
Thanks, all, for your understanding during a transition. Weekend meetups will back in motion soon!
- Heath, Austin Writers Meetup Organizer since April 2007.
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:
