Creative Writers Ambler Meetup

At this Meetup, we'll gather as a group to share our experiences with writing during the month. We'll share ideas and resources and offer encouragement about writing and the process of developing our projects - for ourselves or for publication. We'll also take some time to do writing prompt exercises or other fun writing activities as a way to increase our spontaneity, gain energy and inspiration, and have fun together. If you have writing that you'd like to share, please bring copies with you. We are always happy to celebrate the positive in the work we review and to offer constructive feedback where invited. If you have ideas for fun writing exercises we can do together, please bring them! We will be meeting once per month, on the 2nd Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. If you want to suggest additional times and places to meet, please know you are encouraged to do so. This is a community for all of us!

    Jay-
    I appreciate your kind words. They mean so much to me. Until I read your message I felt as if I had disappointed everyone. It wasn't the first time my story was critiqued. Strangely some of the suggested tweaks at our recent meeting put my story back close to my original draft. Am I confused? Absolutely!
    Thanks, ever so much for your support. Gary

    The people were very supportive and helpful. I really enjoyed the writing exercise and the feedback from critiqued work.

      I didn't get a chance to say it, but I thought your story was excellent! I think we all agreed about that, and were merely suggesting tweaks to make it better.

      Bobby, we don't have a plan. Do you want to suggest one? Typically if we have no set agenda, then people share the work they brought and we offier critiques.

    First Person Arts is offering an 8 hour workshop this weekend with story writer and performer Elna Baker. She's got a reputation as an excellent story performer at the Moth and on Public Radio as well as publishing stories and books. (Check her out on youtube.)

    I'm taking her class this weekend because I want to learn how to write compelling short life stories. The problem is the class needs a couple more signups or it will be canceled.

    Do you know anyone who might be interested?

    Here's a link:

    Best wishes,
