Sudden Writing 2.0

Is it hard finding the time and the space to write, or are you wanting to write but lacking ideas? Wouldn't it be great to write in the company of others, be inspired and maybe make a new friend or two? If so, this meetup is for you.

Here’s how it will work. Once the meetup is underway, you will have one of two options:

Option 1
The host will choose a prompt blindly. This prompt will be read aloud to the group and placed somewhere within easy reach/sight for reference. Participants will then write as directed or suggested by the prompt for one hour, or…

Option 2
You already have something you want to work on and you’re here to do just that. You’ll write on your own for one hour too, and then…

Depending on everyone’s mood, we’ll gather collectively, individually or in groups, and anyone interested may read their work. This is completely voluntary, however you may experience a little gentle peer pressure. :) Most people do tend to read what they've written though, and we often offer very light comments or discussion in encouragement.

That’s it! From there you can do with it what you will: file it away for later, develop it into a full-blown story, take it in a direction not suggested by the prompt, and of course maybe submit it to one of the writing workshops or to our companion website www.thewriteschool.tumblr.com for further online feedback. More information on these options will be provided at the meetup to those of you who may be interested.

One final note:
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 through the comments section to express your regrets. This is to ensure people who are automatically waitlisted can attend.

Also, please be aware that the host cannot guarantee enough electrical outlets will be available. Please plan ahead and/or consider ‘kicking it old school’ and bringing a pen and paper to write with, even as a back-up.

    So, so sorry to have to cancel. Having a running theme of truly terrible Tuesdays. Trying to change the plot.

    I won't make this one, but I am very interested. I haven't written in a long time and miss the relaxation of submerging myself into creativity.

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.
