    Hi -- I'm writing a lot of fiction and publishing again after years of keeping it to myself. I'm amazed to find a group in my zones within driving distance. This is a tentative RSVP. Anything I need to know/ check out before the meeting?

      Hi Bat, If you want to submit, send me an email ([masked]) and I'll send you an invite to the dropbox. There aren't any submissions for this month as of yet, so I think we'll just be hanging out this month.

      Should we move your submission to May?

      Yes, good idea. April 5 was the only day I could get all the family together; it wouldn't have been my choice otherwise.

    Regarding the conversation in progress, for me it's almost always about how it's handled, and whether it is in service to the story (in other words, meaningful) or just for shock/titillation (sp?) value.

    ok get it, i wasnt thinking about adult themes as straight up pornography, maybe implied sexual stuff or maybe nukeady but i was talking about stuff like brawl deaths, people killing themselves, drugs stuff like that but thank you for pointing that out too

  • arthur g.

      We haven't discussed it, as of yet. I would say, no out and out pornography or erotica, but erotic scenes in sci-fi/fantasy/horror should be alright. And I'd also say scenes of rape, abuse, etc. need to be very carefully handled. (And, if so, perhaps a warning on the cover page?) I'll let others weigh in.
