Join your fellow writers to experience the adventures of writing. All types of work welcome, whether fiction, screenwriting, screenplays, essays, poetry or memoirs. We generally do writing exercises to start off each meeting, and then move on to exploring and critiquing projects you may be working on.* If you are having difficulty getting started or moving forward with a project, the exercises can often help to lubricate your pencil. The meetings are open to writers of all levels. Meetings generally run two hours. Enjoy spending time with writer friends!
*NOTE: We now offer two different meeting experiences. Sunday meetings tend to allocate more time to writing; and the Wednesday meetings are geared specifically toward critiquing each other's work.
Beforehand: Before attending a meeting, we urge you to review the tips on receiving and giving feedback. Go to the horizontal navigation bar above, click on MORE, then click on FILES. Scroll down until you see the file named "The Art of Receiving and Giving Feedback." Click on the file to open it.
FILES is also where members post their writing for feedback.
Dues: We do ask for a $10.00 annual contribution to help cover the costs charged by Meetup. Please make your $10 annual membership payable to Sarah Foulke, and mail to her at 229 Washington Street, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
Location: Sunday meetings are held at 229 Washington St., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 (parking lot in back).
