    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.

    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 22nd
    Thx
    Inder

    Hi, I am the new guy. Looking forward to meeting everyone on Tuesday at my first Writers Group meetup. I am the administrator of a Spanish language meetup group if anyone is interested. This group is Clear Lake/Nasa Charla y Cafe.

    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, 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
