Open to Everyone

This is a smoothie place, so come thirsty. We'll sit at the large round table in the back corner.

We'll start with introductions, followed by a writing prompt, after which we will share them.

After this we can critique each other's current projects. If you have any writing you would like feedback on during this meetup, please upload a copy to the files section for members to download. Files should be posted at least 24-hours prior to the meetup.

Files can be a maximum is 5,000 words per meetup. Please check for files prior to the meetup so we can all discuss them. Giving feedback is very important to the purpose of this group.

If there are any issues, please text me (Sophia) at (347) 729-9071. Hope to see you there. :)

NOTE: For anyone who is interested in participating in our fiction anthology, a spot has opened up.

We have been writing and critiquing our anthology stories in segments, voting for each participant to go forward with their story, or re-write/re-work them. To participate, we would need your first 4,000 words ASAP. The theme is "Be Careful What You Wish For" and your story/stories can be a collective 10,200-12,000 words.

So if you're interested, please let me know. Preference is given to members who have attended meetups.

    The second part of "Whatever Is Dreamed" is in the files. I opened both parts of the story up to "anyone", just in case.

      I applaud your perseverance. Horse woman turning your life experience with horses into the fodder for your ya novella. It will make a great series for the tween market, I think. Many young Girls genuinely love horses esp. Those city girls who have little contact with them. Also I loved black beauty as a child. I'd love to read a story written from Fiona's point of view.

    Jason, I'm looking forward to reading your blog. Is it up? Is it on our pages. I'll look now, but u need to do a blog at least once a week. I'd like a fellow New Yorker's view or slant on things in this city of ours, and in the forgotten borough we call home and if you get it up and running I'd be glad to appear once as a guest ghost writer/contributor, if u will allow.. U r smart, and fun, as we all in this group are, and u have much to say.

    I'm looking around too. Another writing meetup met at a Panera's, but that's crowded and sometimes nosiy. What we need is a dive or a sleepy cafe. There's one out by me in Tottenville, but who want's to drive out here?

    Is it possible to find a quieter place to accommodate a bit more people? When the blender gets goin, it's really hard to hear. Maybe a local library could lend us their conference room, but then it would have to be open to the public I guess. Has anyone looked into moving the venue from time to time?

      Some weeks we have a waitlist. Other weeks we only have 3 members rsvp. I try to have frequent meetups to balance it out, but I think this is the best venue for us until another cafe opens up.

      I've been looking too, and thought I found a place a while back, but it was entirely too small to accommodate even 7 or 8, so that doesn't work for us. I think one issue we have is that the caf├ęs that do exist in Staten Island are very popular and/or tiny, so this has been the best option so far. I've still been looking, though!!

    Gotcha, Joanne. So what happened to Sophia.?

    March 17, 2014

    • Joanne

      She was demoted for gross incompet- I mean, she was concerned about privacy issues. Best not to mention her name here.
