Welcome to our little group. We typically meet on every Thursday evening, though we have had meetings on other nights. Our usual venue is Starbucks (second floor of Chapters, downtown) but we also use the Atrium (next to the Habit coffee shop, downtown) sometimes.
The first Thursday of each month is reserved for a Meet N Greet. Here we discuss group business and then play some word games to stretch our writing muscles.
The third Thursday of each month is a critique night. Here we break into subgroups to give feedback and encouragement on our respective writing projects. When we can we typically schedule a general ‘hanging out’ session on the same night for those not currently in a critique subgroup.
On all the other Thursdays we have a theme night, picked in advance from a list of topics people want to cover … topics include: dealing with writer’s block, how to write an erotic scene, dialogue, issues over POV, etc. We have not had a meetup about copyright issues yet, but we should (it’s a good one). We have had discussion about traditional verses self publishing. We have even had presentations by local self-publishing services, sharing their experiences of the book industry, editors’ expectations, etc.
Hopefully we’ll see you around.
