Monday Central Phoenix Writers' Workshop

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 two to three 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.

    It was fabulous! Jacob is a an ideal moderator and leader. The cast of characters, both on the page and off, were fantastic. :)

    Sorry, I am unable to attend this Monday Meetup on 9/23. I am on the Board for the Homeowners Assocation and we have a Quarterly meeting. See you the next Monday.
