Thanks for making our last meeting such a blast! Our next one will be on Thursday, Sept 12th. I'm so looking forward to it!
Format: Each participant has a total of 30 mins to read an excerpt from his/her writing and get comments from other people in the group.
Upload files: If you'd like to make available to people the piece of writing you're going to read, you can upload it to the file section on the group's homepage: http://www.meetup.com/Write-on-Life-Washington-DC-Writers-Group/files/. There may be some of us who can read it beforehand and thus provide more detailed critiques. But this is not necessary for you to benefit from the meeting.
What to bring: 1) An excerpt of your writing (ideally no more than 2000 words) to read to the group. 2) Pen and paper to take notes. 3) A welcoming mind to bad writing, both of yours and of others. 4) Constructive suggestions (Don't just say, "That's bad". Say how you think it can be made better.)
Donation: I'd appreciate if you could bring a small donation to cover the expense. Offer whatever amount you can.
I'll prepare snacks and soft drinks. Can't wait to see you again soon!
