W4AS is writers, poets, musicians, artists, listeners, readers, but most of all -- friends.
1. support each other's creative endeavors
2. find like-minded people who will enhance our creative endeavors
3. critique NOT criticize
4. develop friendships
Each meeting is divided into two areas: a mini-lesson on the business-side of writing or art and then time during which our members read aloud or display something they would like to be critiqued by the other members. About every three months, we have a guest author who lectures and then has a book-signing.
Please respect time constraints during the meeting and limit your comments as well as your readings appropriately. We're here to help each other improve our crafts.
