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.

    Hello My fellow writers and friends,
    I arrived in Ft Lauderdale about a month ago. I'm three blocks from the ocean and beautiful beaches.
    I'm attending my first writers meeting here tonight at seven pm.
    Seems that Wednesday is writers day were ever you go.
    I see that you have several new members, and the USUAL suspects .(Larry, Chet, Richard, Mike)(No Dwayne this week or Cindy???) My email is carrjen2@ yahoo.com, I've got a book for Richard, and something similar to the type of stories that Mike writes(Got a little chemo brain at the moment, can't think of the term for Mike's work) Surprising how long chemo and stays in the body and brain. God knows I don't any more dark stuff cluttering up what little working function is up there...LOL
    Larry, I really miss your humor, and miss all of the help I received from everyone. Hey Mike, how's that for a paragraph...LOL

    Please send your addresses Richard and Mike so I can these books to youse guys, or I'll send Deluchie after youse.
    Pat

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.
