Hi Writers,


A lot of new folks have joined our ranks in the past week. Please take a moment to read this, so you will know how we go about doing what we do.


Take a look at the description listed in the "About us..." link (located under our group picture).


There are two things to read before the meeting, by Nicole and William. Here's what you should do: (1) Print out what they've written. (2) Write notes on the print-out as you read. Focus on substance. This is not the time to make grammatical revisions. Respond according to how it makes you feel--but don't say "good" or "bad", because that's ultimately not helpful. (3) Write a response to the piece at the end. Typed, if you can. Respond to what confused you, how it made you feel, whether characters came to life for you, etc. (4) Please arrive at 6:30, since we start on time.


If you have questions, please let me know. I'm happy to answer them.






P.S. You must be logged into to see the appropriate files. Some files are for group members only, so logging in is a must!


P.P.S. Please RSVP to a meeting if you'd like to attend--and if you've already RSVP'd but need to change it, do so now! And if you're having trouble attending a meeting, please send me a note.
