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 knew I would enjoy the meeting, but was surprised at how much I did. It is exactly what I need to get my work fixed up properly. Thank you all for your feed back (and Mike and Dwayne thank you for sticking around for a few to chat afterward). I learned a lot from lessening to what everyone said about all of the work being read. I am going to try to make it every week....the writer part of me didn't want the conversations to end. The father part of me was glad to get home and into bed :) see you all next week if time is in my favor.

    Due to a family emergency I had to forego the meeting group. I look forward to meeting all of you at a future event.

      Hi Michelle, Thanks for the very useful feedback. Almost every group meets on Wednesday eve. I'm in Tempe and would like the East Valley group but I have a conflict. I'll try in the future to shuffle my schedule.

      Barbara, where are the ones in Scottsdale? I am from there and anything closer to me would be so convenient so I don't have to rush to and from work =)
