Outside of the Box

Please read descriptions of events before attending.

Important information may be in the description.

What are we doing?

It's kind of like opposite day.

Whatever your usual style, think outside of the box, and write something different.

If you write poems, write a story.
If you write stories, write a poem.
If you write comedy, write drama or horror.
If you write sad stuff, write something happy.


The prompts, themes, topics, and/or events are posted here on meetup.
Check the Seeking the muse meetup Calendar to see upcoming events.

During a meeting we have time to write and then time to share what we've written.

If you'd like to bring something that you have written before the group you are welcome to do so.

Time is limited, so if you have a long piece you want to share,
please break it up into smaller sections to read on different nights
so others have a chance to read during the meeting.

I provide a prompt or idea and the group has time to work on whatever it is that they decide to do. As always, if you do not want to write or create on the topics provided then you can use the free time to "do your own thing". Think of the prompts as optional.

You are welcome to just use the time and space for your own creative endeavors. This might be the perfect time for you to commit to spending time on an Open Studio/ Independent Study. If you want to share during the feedback portion of the group then you are encouraged to do so. If you do not wish to share, then you do not have to. We're all coming together to enjoy this time. So just kick back, relax, and have fun.

What to Bring
Please remember to bring a notebook and a pen/pencil (or laptop and power cord).
A sense of humor and desire for fun are also a plus. smile

Donations to help offset the website fee to run this group are appreciated, but not mandatory.
About $2 per person once a month should be enough to cover the website cost.

at the Qdoba Mexican Restaurant in Cherry Hill, NJ.
Qdoba is located in the Ellisburg Circle Shopping Center
on Rt. 70 and Kings Highway.
