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.

    For the new people - we don't take attendance. If you can make it - great. If not, perhaps Monday or Wednesday might work for you. You do not need to RSVP if you are not coming. There are actually some 500 people on the rolls at any one time - we assume you're not coming unless you RSVP otherwise.
