SF/F Group

This sub-group focuses on Science Fiction and Fantasy, so if you have anything that falls under that category — be it short story, poem or novel-in-progress — then come! We'd love to hear from you.

Our format allows each reader 15 minutes to present their work... followed by approximately 20 minutes of feedback from the other attendees. To ensure a fair opportunity to respond, each attendee is limited to 1 minute of feedback time. (Using this structure, we are usually able to get through four readers in any given night.)

If a reader elects to post their work in advance (NOT a requirement!), members will be able to access that work under the "More" > "Files" section from the drop-down menu, above.

    A reminder that my Writer's Work Day is coming up -- this Sunday from noon to 5-ish. See my previous post, if you haven't a clue what I'm talking about ;) Directions are in the Files, called Directions to Birnamwood. I'm making a lasagna.

      Sorry I can't come, but most of the programming I'm in at IllogiCon is this Sun afternoon.

    As of last night, sounds like no one will make this Dec. 31st Meet-up. So, for an extra chance to meet, work and hang out that comes before the next official date of Jan. 14th, I'm hosting another Writers Work Day, Jan. 5th. It's noon to 5. For those who haven't heard of these -- they're a chance at having a lovely potluck lunch, then settling down in a comfy chair and working on your writing in the congenial company of your fellow creative folk. I usually offer one a month. My home is a wooded area about 15 minutes West and South of Carrboro. Please come if you can, and Face Book friend me, if you haven't already: Allegra Gulino. Directions will be forthcoming ;)
    Happy New Year!

      Oh, shucks. I was about to RSVP. I'll have to wait for my schedule to come in from work.

    For people seeking professional assistance at reasonable rates, I found this service has a good reputation:

    Would anyone in the area still be interested in catching a showing of the Hobbit with me sometime during this coming week? My movie theatre serves beer and is right next to a good burrito joint, but I heard some other good suggestions for after the last session at Bailey's. If anyone still wants to do a little get together (Beyond Allegra's writer's work day). I've put off seeing this movie until I can find someone to go with. Any takers?

      Alas, poor Yorik.....I mean. I may be persuaded to go to Raleigh and shoot off my mouth with ya'll afterwards ;)

      As it turns out I shall be going to see it with family tonight! Will, I too live right next to the Raleigh Grande, so shoot me an e-mail if you're up for catching a film this week.

    I notice 9 people have said they are coming to the Dec 31st meeting. Are we actually having it? Because it seemed up in the air at the last meeting.

      If you go to Straw Valley, you may not be able to find a place to read, let alone park. I would think they'd be making merry. I won't be attending until the January meeting.

    Yup, out of town -- but I've RSVP'd for 2014. See you all then! (Still taming my sci-fi screenplay, but I'm close to having an outline to share.)

    Fun date, but I'll be out of town.
