Write in the evening with a drink.

I'd suggest to meet in this Self-Service informal but nice restaurant and write about a special period, of course it could be Christmas. The meaning of our Christmas past or present (maybe it is none, maybe we have endured the frenzy without being part in it at all or maybe for us it is another period like Ramadan), our best Christmas, an imaginary Christmas day, a Christmas office party, Christmas shopping, a Christmas imaginary love affair, crime, etc..Up to you. We will write for 15 to 20 minutes and then read aloud, no feedback is given.

In addition, i suggest to write on your own from this prompt: 'Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that' . If you like, you can read for everyone a part of what you wrote. Feel free to re-name 'Marley'. (By the way, do you recognise the phrase? Maybe you do, it is a very famous Christmas story. Otherwise there is always Google ;-)).

In Jelmoli's Self-Service restaurant it is possible to have only a drink but you can also eat.

Looking forward to this, hope you can make it.

    Hi all, unfortunately I have to cancel because I'm alone with my kids and someone needs to look after them. I hope to join you next time. Best regards, dani

    Signed up really just to see the venue. How often do you meet? How many people come usually?

      Hi Viktor! thanks for joining our group, welcome!. I took over this group from Anne Sophie who ran it for a few months till November or so till she moved on. Tomorrow's meet up will be the first since I am organising. So I am just starting to get it up and running. The venue for tomorrow's meeting (Jelmoli's self-service) is -I hope- just a convenient due to being central and the fact that it is self-service so you have a choice on whether to just have a drink or have additionally something to eat. Also, I expect it to be relatively quiet. Pubs and other places in my view can be too noisy for a writing group which is starting I think. What in particular about the venue interests you from the point of view of writing? Kind regards,
