10am-1pm. After sharing and critiquing we can grab Indian food at a highly recommended Indian restaurant (Dakshin on Bardstown Rd.) that shows Bollywood movies. Package deals like this are not easy to find in the literary world. As a money raising idea for future guest speakers we invite all attendees to bring used books to sell to members for $1/book donated to group. Please take any unsold books home. Please don't try to sell us library books (ha, ha!). Also there will be a discrete donation basket for suggested $5 donations toward our fund. If you know of a good and preferably local candidate to speak to our group please email Dave recommendations. We are looking for published authors who are skilled teachers of technique and the publishing process, good communicators and not just someone pushing a book. Also, some people will bring snacks. Feel free to bring some, too.
Please send a writing sample to Dave before you become a member and absolutely before you RSVP for your first meeting. Message me and I will give you my email address.
Check some previous meeting posts for more details.
We ask you attend one meeting before you share your writing.
$20 yearly fee due by your 2nd meeting if you are new. Fees offset Meetup fees.
If anyone is late to a meeting I will ask you to donate $2 to the popcorn/Crunch and Munch fund.
Remember to change your RSVP status if you can't attend.
When there's a waiting list the system will automatically move you to 'attending' and email you when someone changes their RSVP.
If you no-show for a meeting you will need to rejoin as a member and skip the next meeting.
You can also email me or another organizer with questions.
Check in at 9:15. Start meeting at 9:30.
Meet friends and hear how your potential readership reacts to your work. This group is dedicated to reaching and supporting creative (fiction) writers of all stripes in the Louisville area. New members must attend at least 1 meeting as a critiquer before bringing writing--not a big requirement, really. It's a good idea to check us out first anyway. Though we try to be as open as possible there are a few genres that are not suitable: children's lit., non-fiction, screenplays and poetry. We need to manage who presents material to ensure enough time to discuss, so we distribute presenters as evenly as we can between the small groups. Please help us create a strong environment of support and good feedback even when you don't have writing to present. The maximum word limit is 3,000 words or 15 mins of presenting whiceer comes first. See sign up list to judge how many copies to bring. For New member guidelines go on this site to: Discussions> Message Board>For New and Prospective Members.
Please message Dave for his email address and then send a writing sample no more than 3,000 words.
