Sunday Central Phoenix Writing Workshop Meetup

(Free) Fair Trade Cafe Parking is off portland Ave (Parking Garage).  Fair trade cafe is on the South East corner of the Building.

Feel free to check the moderator's guide for tips on how the meeting will progress.

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.

    Literally one of the last things I am doing before we move back to CT, as we are leaving the next day. But this group was one of the highlights of our time out here, so I insisted that I be able to attend :-)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
