The Lakewood Literary Club is first and foremost a collaboration of people bent on self expression through the written word. With nearly every genre represented, we have alot of diversity within the group. Some very talented writers show month after month... they are to say the least, inspiring. We have begun to draw a significant number of new members also. It has bumped our numbers up to 12-15 writers every month.
Generally, we are here 3 hours. If each member is given 12-15 minutes to read and enjoy the critiquing process that follows we've only time to hear from 12-15 members comfortably. The draw of this particular Writers Club is its smaller size equating to a more focused, positive experience for all involved. In an effort to preserve the ambiance that we have enjoyed from day one, I have decided to add an extra evening to our monthly calendar. The Lakewood Literary Club will now meet on the first and fourth Thursday of every month.
I am hoping the added evening will allow us to see our core group more than once a month and afford our intermittent and/or new members more time to read, experiencing a more relaxed presentation of their work and ample time for the group to critique that which has been presented to them.
If you are planning on attending, please remember to RSVP..... members will want to see whose coming. It may dictate which evening they decide to join us especially if they can only make it once that month.
Thank you. Joni (Organizer: Lakewood Literary Club)
