Hey Gang -- It has been a long time since we heard members of this group read. Please come. While you don't have to read, we would love to hear your most recent stuff! I usually limit readings from anyone person to about ten minutes. When RSVPing, please leave a comment if you plan to read. (This helps me plan.) Now, I can hear you say, "That's great, Hilary. What else are you planning for this Meetup?" I'm so glad you asked. We will have some door prizes, gossip, and we will also celebrate some of the most recent group sales and publications (there have been a lot of them lately!) We'll be having the event at Betsy's Back Porch, a lovely little coffee shop with comfy chairs and some decent breakfast selections. You will note that for the first time I have put an RSVP cap on an event. This is a space limit put down by our venue, Betsy's Back Porch. I'm not too worried about it... All of our past gatherings have been under 15 people, but should there be a question about this, talk to me or leave a post on the message board. And if you want to come... RSVP early to let me know that you can make it. As always, if anyone needs a ride to or from the Meetup please let me know! Hugs, Hmm

    Reading is fun. Is it the accepted method for sharing work? I'm kinda partial to making copies and exchanging work so I can write out comments and discuss it at the next meeting.

    It was a fun event, and great to hear people read... Still, I think that I could improve my timing so that people do not get cut off too abruptly while reading, and so the group has more time to converse! Our readers included Andre Guirard, Ricky Foos, BobWagner, Jason Wittman, Terry Faust and Pat O'Regan. Thanks to everyone who read and attended!

    A colossal waste of time. I could have spent it writing instead. Will not be back.

    Enjoyed seeing everyone & hearing the readings. The nonfiction article seemed a bit off-topic for the group, but that was brief.

    It looks like the meeting wasn't really over when the readings ended -- everyone was standing around for 15 minutes or so after it was supposedly ended. Leave time for open conversation while people are still seated!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
