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.

    I have been trying to get there the last few weeks but my workload is crushing, so I am not positive I can make it. However, I will try and I am really excited to meet new like minded people and expand my experience and knowledge. Thank you

    I discovered that the Horse Nutrition workshop that I signed up for is not on a week-end but this Wednesday evening. I will be back on the 16th with plenty to read - just as I was getting a feel for your stories..........N

    I've been in the hospital since Thursday with the flu. While they are discharging me now, they've basically said no contact with the outside world until after I'm cleared medically on Wednesday afternoon, and even then to be careful in packed places. Somehow, thinking all the patrons of the Village Inn, not just the members of our group, will be happier if I sit this week out.

      Jen, I hope you are feeling better. That must have really hit you. Let us know how you are doing. Noelle
