We can discuss critiquing options and frequency of meeting etc.
Platform Houston is an excellent quiet venue which lends itself to a great working environment to exchange ideas and critique works.

I like that the format is focused and we get a lot of discussion and valuable critiques in two hours. Great group - I look forward to getting to know everyone through giving and receiving constructive comments on writings.

No worries Moken. We missed you at the first meetup. Let us meet at the next one.
Very enjoyable. There was an active exchange with upbeat tone concerning the reading material.
Have we got 3 readings lined up?
No- just one so far
I'd be willing to share a poem in case we need another reading
sure...bring enough copies for everyone
Tuesdays work for me, but maybe at 7 instead of 6:30? I have a meeting until then at the Looscan Library (Westheimer and Willowick). If the group votes to keep it at 6:30, I'll just be a few minutes late most meetings:)

Hi, Team of aspiring writers,
Just to set out agenda for the meeting on Tuesday-1) Spend 30 minutes with introductions and idea exchanges for best way to get works critiqued. To make this go even faster I encourage you to participate in the online poll I opened about dates and time those work best for you.
2) Read 3 peices of whatever people bring to be read in front of the group and give critiques on these. We will have to limit to 3 readings this time.Those who would like to bring peices to be read please bring enough copies for everyone. Limit your writing to 2000 words and please use double space on your printouts and a font size of 12 (minimum)
Our purpose is to encourage people to write more and bring more work to the group and achieve their writing goals.
See you guys on the 22ndThxInder

Hey there, I just got a schedule that has me teaching Tuesday nights (last minute change). I respectfully request that meetings be held on different days sometimes! (if other people need this too...). If not, no worries. Just want the group to know that if I don't attend Tuesday nights, it's not for lack of desire, but my teaching schedule! It will change by mid-May...

Jane...No worries. The day of the week is what we are going to get a concensus on in our meeting. I would encourage you to join the first meeting and voice your opinion. If you are unable to join then remind me on the day of the meeting and I will take your vote into account for any alternate day. Also in case you cant attend then pls suggest 2-3 alternate days.
Jane, I agree with Inder. Let's see how the majority leans and go from there.
I feel a run at Rice is in order to discuss! Text me a good time for you. Andrea
Is it okay if I arrive late? I have a standing Tues meeting from 5:30 to 6:30 - near Central Market.

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.
