Writer's Social

New to the group? Want to test the waters and meet a few of your peers before submitting your work to our writing workshop? Or perhaps you’d like to share a small piece of your writing in an informal setting or just kick back, relax and talk about books, writing or life with some like-minded people?

Whether you’re new to Portland Aspiring Writers Group or you’re becoming one of the regulars, this meetup is for you. One of the interesting things for me that I didn't anticipate in organizing this group is writers like to talk, so this is when we get together and do that. There are no obligations and we keep it kind of free form. All you have to do is bring something to talk about and a willingness to listen, maybe buy something to drink or nosh on. Anything else is up to you, although we will set aside time for anyone who may want to read a small sample of their writing. So if you want to hear opinions expressed, books suggested or panned, or hear about what others are writing about and/or what they’re struggling with creatively, please join us! It's a great opportunity to meet others and see what a diverse range of writing styles and interests, and professional and academic experiences the members of our group have.

One final note:
Historically this has been our largest and most popular meetup. If you RSVP Yes and then find you can’t attend prior to the meetup, please take the time to change your RSVP to No, or contact the host privately or through the comments section to express your regrets. This is to ensure people who are automatically waitlisted can attend and it helps the host in gathering enough tables and chairs to seat everyone who RSVPed Yes. This meetup occurs in a freely and kindly provided public space that isn’t reserved to us exclusively, so please be respectful of your host, the venue and their other customers who might be looking for a seat by being thoughtful in letting the host know if you can’t attend as you’d hoped to.

    I'm not going to make it after all - I worked later than expected and think I might be coming down with a cold, so probably best to stay home and ward it off.

    Scott, I'd like to read my Short Story for the PWG Podcast at tonight's Social to give Josiah's project a boost. (WHEN ICE RUNS RED, 7 double spaced pages, 2,000 words.)

    Scott, we had discussed the possibility of a location a bit larger than BAM for this one particular meet-up. last week I sent Lesley a list of 4 places that would accommodate us, and the status of those locations according to the town hall, but have received no acknowledgment of that e-mail yet. I am working hard on this end. please advise.

    I may bring a friend but most likely will come alone.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
