Clearwater Writers Meet-Up

  • Mar 25, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We meet at my home every other Tuesday, from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. (near Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater.) I provide chips and drinks. If you want to bring a finger-food snack to share, that's 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, writers are given the opportunity to read from their work for up to 10 minutes and then receive verbal comments/critiques from the rest of the group. Those members who supply printed copies of their work to other members will receive a more thorough critique. All materials are returned to the writer at the end of the group critique.

Hope you can join us!

    I Could almost weep! I am worn out from laying patio block today....I will Not Make the[masked] "Meetup" I have been procrastinating in my writing; thank goodness for my biggest fan Jen, who resides IN Pittsburgh, who is urging me on! We were in a writing class in lacrosse, WI. together, where WE sorta fell in together. OK, next meetup; I will be there with "fresh material! I will make this event a "priority".

      No problem, John. But in the future, please call me (my phone number is at the bottom of the directions e-mail I send out before each meeting.) When it is within an hour of the meet-up, I'm not on my computer. Looking forward to seeing you at the next meet-up!

    It was a good meeting and I continue to be inspired by the variety and quality of the group's members. One issue, though: For those who RSVP and then don't show up. I spend at least an hour before each meeting, dragging in chairs, lamps, tray tables and food, based on the RSVP list. Also, most members print out copies of the work they plan to share, based on the number of attendees expected. Although, I know sometimes s___ happens at the last minute, please change your RSVP and call me as soon as you know you won't make it, to save me unnecessary work & other group members paper/ink for extra copies of their work. Thanks!

    You might want to update the blurb on this page, BonSue... Also, how about doing the writer critiques first and the topic-sharing second? Just a thought...

    • BonSue B.

      Thanks, Russil - You're right, an updated blurb was in order. The reason we do the topic-sharing first is to allow everyone to arrive before we begin the writer critiques. Maybe I'll try to cut the discussion off at 7:30 and then pick it up again after everyone has had a chance to read their work and see if that works better. Hope to see you at our next meet-up!
