Wednesday East Valley Writing Workshop Meetup

Please note that this meeting is scheduled for 3 Hours from 6 to 9 PM.

This is an informal gathering every week that is designed to promote feedback on work, and to highlight the strong parts of one's work as well as ideas to improve weaker portions. Everyone attending is encouraged to bring pieces to read as they are comfortable with. Poems, Essays, and stories are all free 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.

If someone has to leave early, let everyone know so your work can be read first.

    had a wonderful time listening to so much raw creativity bared for all of us to criticize as well as praise. A good lot of that healthy author ego to keep things interesting and focused

    Love the variety of writers, subjects and styles. This was my first visit and I found it fun and educational. The group is warm, friendly and not afraid to speak their minds. I will attend again!

    Looking forward to checking this out. I've always wanted to see my writing published but never took time to find out how to accomplish that. Hopefully this meeting will encourage me to do so.

    Hi, interested in exploring this writing group. I'm attempting to write a novel. May I bring my writing to the group even though it is my first time? And if so, how many pages is the norm? Thanks.

      Hey Ken, we usually bring in under 1500 words, double spaced and copies for everyone to make notes on. Hope that helps.
