Is the only thing this group going to do is have a few people show up on Wednesdays and every other Tuesday??
If it is, that's fine. I'm willing to put as much effort into this group as the members are willing to participate. I posted a question about where in Mesa around Southern and Country Club to meet for the next Tuesday meetup, and no responses. It makes me feel like these meetups just aren't that much of a draw for everyone.
All I'm asking for is ideas, tell me what you want and we can do it. The members that participate and offer ideas are the ones that get to choose, those that sit back quietly have to take what is offered and are not allowed to complain when it's not something that is convenient or to their liking. I can work with 'I'd rather meet at such-and-such on Thursdays', I can't work with 'That's too far to drive' or 'I can't make Tuesdays'.
If you can't participate because you are busy, I understand. This isn't meant to be a forum for me to whine and complain. Things will continue just the way they are if no one has any ideas.
If that's Ok with you, it's OK with me. If it's not OK with you, please let me or Kevin know what you would like.
We have some very talented writers in this group, I hope to meet all of you soon.
The writing workshops and groups under my sponsorship are a group of community based writing organizations. Our purpose is to stimulate writing literacy, interest, and excellence through meetings, friendships, and peer critique.
- We serve open style critique groups as our mainstay, with the addition of tailored meetings for more involved or specific purposes.
- Our strength is among the community we derive from, and the empowerment of individuals to step up with our mutual support.
- Our secondary goals are to support community based efforts to provide opportunities and connections to help our individual members achieve personal and commercial success.
Documents and Resources - We have posted some resources you may want to check:
Respect does not come from being right. It comes from being wise. We’re not here to tell people the “right way” to do things. We’re here to guide people to the best ways to do things. Most of us are smart and knowledgeable. But our respect comes when we value the knowledge of others above our own.
