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.

    Thursday night reads are so diverse, sometimes controversial, yet always interesting.

    I was disappoited by the small turnout but as usual the comments and criticism were helpful, and the quality of the work is good.

    Very likely I'll show up 15 to 30 minutes late for this meeting.

    I use to write a lot of research papers over the years, and just started writing for myself and I am enjoying it. I have a number of poems which I wrote and the people I showed them to just love them. They say I have a talent??
    I have a book also in the works called aging death and dying, a guide for the next generation of medical professionals and caregivers.
    anyway, I am eager to learn from other people.
