Writing at the Denny's

If you can't make it at 6 that's fine, just arrive when you can. If you want a critique of your work, we recommend at most 6 pages/1500 words, double-spaced, serif font, with your name, title of the piece, and page number on each page. Check the attendance before you leave to make sure you have enough copies. Meeting to introduce ourselves and learn about our respective writing goals. Feel free to bring a notebook and use the time to write or bring a piece of writing to read a portion of and discuss. You are not required to bring anything. You may also participate as a reader for others. The atmosphere is casual. We have participants at all levels of skill. We generally pass out pages for others to read and make constructive comments on and then we discuss each piece. Check out the rsvp list to see how many copies to bring. The second Tuesday evening of each month is our time to encourage each other. I hope that folks will also use it as a time to plan other writing related get togethers. First Draft, Word Count, Page count and Revision parties etc. Harness the power of being accountable to other writers. "Okay, I'll see you Tuesday with three new pages..." Or just share your struggles and triumphs as you put one letter after another. Please check out our message board and add your suggestions there for meeting locations times etc. This is a drop-in group. The meeting lasts from 6-9. You are welcome to show up any time between 6-9 and stay for as long or as short a time as you like.
