Hi Everybody. You saw it right, it said 6:30 PM as starting time, moved up from 7 PM. We had 13 people show up on June 25 and even though everyone got to read, we went past our allotted time and didn't get out until 9:35 p.m.
So this coming Tuesday, we will officially start at 6:30 PM. Even if everyone has not arrived yet, we will begin reading. I will be there, as will a few others, so no one will be denied the opportunity to read their stuff. As a writer myself, I know how important it is for everyone who has prepared something to read to be able to read it to the group. We have a lot of talented, hard-working writers, and we want to hear them all.
If you come in after the reading has started, I will make note of your arrival and schedule you to read sometime during the evening.
We are flexible. We will try this and see if it works. We do not want to limit the size of the group because when that happens the same few people quickly dominate the group and we lose the variety of different personalities and talent that gives us our energy.
We are a group of writers, exercising and developing our writing skills through the entire process, from journal keeping and memoir writing, to turning those memoirs into works of art such as poetry, drama and fiction. Bring what you've written, from any step along the way, preferably 500 to 2,000 words, and enough copies for all members, to read to the group. Check the RSVPs so you know how many copies to bring.
See you all on Tuesday evening,
