We will meet once a week (most weeks) with the intention of writing and sharing. Writing and editing are two separate activities which are often done at the same time: we mentally cross out words and dismiss ideas before they even make it to the paper. For many people, the simple act of showing up and writing is enough. For others, it will be a means of creating first drafts or potential areas to explore further.
The group is suitable for new, experienced, and non-writers.
The basic structure is that I will provide a topic, prompt or exercise that we will work on for a set length of time and then, those interested may share and receive feedback. We will also have time for sharing a piece that has been worked on outside of the group. In that case, more critical feedback will be offered.
What I hope to do is provide a group that everyone looks forward to participating in.
The cost is on a sliding scale of $5 to $15 per session; if you can't pay the $15, please let me know what you can pay and we'll work something out. Cash, barter, trade, etc.
I have been leading writing groups for about nine years. This one has been running for over two years now. We love new people, so please join us any time :)
