Thursday Central Phoenix Writing Workshop Meetup

This Meeting is run by Tony Padegimas and Isabel.

***Please note the new Venue - Armadillo Grill!  We are back to a 7PM meeting time.***

This is an informal gathering every week that is designed to promote feedback on work, and to highlight the strengths of one's work as well as offer ideas to improve weaknesses. Attendees are encouraged to bring pieces to read that they are comfortable sharing. Poems, Essays, and stories are all fair game. Generally, anything over 4-6 pages will be read over several sessions. We recommend bringing extra copies if you can.

The general flow is some gab time at first. Then people will read the works out loud (or ask someone else to) one at a time and usually ask for feedback. Some people want help with their work, others might just want grammar lessons. If someone has lots of feedback, it is usually best to mark up a copy and hand it back.

The meeting generally lasts about two hours. If someone has to leave early, let everyone know so your work can be read first.  Likewise, if you will be late but intend to read, let the moderators know in advance.

    I'm giving last night's meeting my highest rating ever: two stars! Couldn't have been any better with dancing bears and a free t-shirt.

      Imagine how much fun you might have had if you'd had a chance to read. LOL!

    Great, Tony. I co-mod another group, and several of our members are out-of-town this week. Thought it might be fun to check out a different group. Mine is sick of the story story I'm bringing. :)

    We are not clock-watchers, and Armadillo Grill has a kitchen.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
