SSWG Tuesday Night Meeting: The Elevator Pitch

Welcome to the Silver Spring Writer's Group Tuesday Meeting!

The Tuesday meetings are a great opportunity to get to know the writers in our group.  With a more casual format than the Saturday meetings, we typically meet from 7pm - 8:30 pm ET on the fourth Tuesday of the month.

The meeting is divided into two parts:

(1)  Introductions

(2) Targeted Discussion 

Introductions is a time to introduce yourself, your work, and any issues you may be facing that you think your fellow writers can help with.

Targeted Discussion is just that - a chance to talk about anything and everything related to your writing, writing in general, literature as we know it today!  Typically I'll try to provide a handout or resources focused on a particular area of writing (such as narrative structure, character, dialogue, etc).  Sometimes we also do writing activities, where each individual will have approximately 20 minutes to write and then share (if you want!) with our colleagues to get additional ideas about what's working.

Focus for the 3/25/13 Meeting: The Elevator Pitch How do you describe the work that you do when you're meeting other writers? How would you communicate your work to a potential publisher? This is a chance to work on and refine your elevator pitch - how you sell your writing to others.

UPDATE: The Tuesday night meeting location is at Zed's Cafe, located at 8225 Georgia Avenue, just a few blocks south of the Discovery Building (directions at http://www.zedscafe.com/directions.html).  (We meet here at the request of attendees who were having trouble hearing over Qdoba's evening clean up routine.)
