So, the moment a meetup is over, meetup.com projects forwards the next meetup it thinks there is. But somehow, the tiny gremlins running that show have been messing up our dates lately. The Austin Writers Meetup normally strives to be the last Sunday of each month; in September this was off; I think I was trying to get the meetup gremlins back in sync. Now it's skipped October entirely.
Well, we will not only be having a meetup in October, we will probably be having 2! There was enough momentum at the meetup to try out a 'write-in'; a time where the writers who wish to simply show up ready to wrate at the same time and place, not necessarily gab. This will be in the middle of October. But for the moment, please ignore the Nov 3 date. it's wrong. :)
Thanks to all who came and made this another lively meetup with familiar faces and new ones. Stay tuned!
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:
