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 or experienced creative writers.
The basic structure is that I will provide a topic, prompt or exercise that we will use as a starting point to write for a set length of time and then, those interested may share and receive feedback. (You can always 'pass' but most people read most of the time.)
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. If you can't pay the $5, then talk to me about that, too; there are so many reasons to not write...I don't want lack of money to be one of them.
I have been leading writing groups for over ten years. We love new people, so please join us any time. You don't have to commit to coming every week...it's perfectly fine to drop in as you like.
