Because the manager at O'Keefe's (Mike) said we could not use our microphone anymore, we are going to try meeting at my home every other Tuesday, from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. (near Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater.) If this doesn't work out, then we'll find another location. I'll provide chips and drinks. If you want to bring a finger-food snack to share, that would be great, but not necessary.
The first portion of our meeting is devoted to talking about topics of interest to writers of all genres, such as: • What’s new in the publishing industry, • What hot websites/blogs have been discovered, • Discussion/Information-sharing pertaining to articles we have read
During the second portion of our meeting, individuals are each given the opportunity to read from their work and receive verbal comments/critiques from the rest of the group. Interested members can also supply printed copies of their work to other members, who will then provide a more detailed, written critique of the work sample. Hope you can join us!
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
