    I haven't been to one of these yet. Do you talk, like a roundtable, or do you also read from your own works for discussion?

      Hi Tracey! I am a bit late replying, sorry. This meeting is specifically for "shop talk" and networking with other locals who share our sickness--I mean obsession-- I mean addiction... :) We generally do a roundtable discussion on a variety of topics. People ask for advice. We commiserate and share successes. People look for interested critiquers or someone to hang at the coffee shop and write with. The one thing we don't generally do is read from our work or do critiques of member's work during the meeting. My goal is to keep this particular meetup out of the criticism bidness and fully immersed in the "battery charging" aspects that are desperately needed in such a lonely craft. Hope this helps and hope to see you next month!

    I'm interested in a group that has writers review each others work for errors and bad habits. Regardless of the fact I have two novels published, I'm not educated well, and want as many opinions of my work as possible, good or bad.

      Good meeting you last night, Patrick. Hope we see more of you in the future. Apologies for not seeing this post earlier, I've been swamped lately. Let me know how things work out!

    I have no idea what I just signed up for, but am excited about meeting a group of writers, and hope to be able to have the opportunity to share my work and support that of others. See you tonight. Karen

      Sorry I didn't reply to this post before the meeting. The email got buried in a deluge of its kindred. Glad to see you there and hope all is well! Take care and keep in touch. Email me if you have any questions beyond what we covered last night.

    A great turnout of 8 writers from all kinds of backgrounds and genres. Wide-ranging conversation on craft and business. I am always reminded after these how much more interesting writers are than other people! :)
