December Meetings and the Future of the Group

From: Sarah
Sent on: Tuesday, December 1, 2009 12:39 AM
Hello everyone!

Matt emailed me yesterday asking if we were having a meeting this week. Due to the craziness of the holidays, I think it would be best if we skip December and reconvene in January. In the meantime, I encourage you all to work on whatever you're writing so we'll have plenty to look at in January!

On another note, the group is only paid for through near Christmas and, due to my recent vocational issues, my budget cannot stretch even that far. I propose two solutions and I would like to hear what you all think:

1) We take the group off of and create a free Google Group. The main advantage of Meetup is that anyone who is interested can search for a writer's group and find us. If we move to a Google Group, our primary means of adding new members would be word of mouth.

2) The other option is to remain on Meetup, but I will need people to donate money up front. This can be set up through the Meetup website or PayPal. The costs are $45 for three months. If we can get 9 people to donate $5 each or 5 people to donate $9 each, then we could cover the next three months.

Please let me know what you think.
