Hi All, For those of you who were not at the Writer?s Group meeting on Tuesday, January 19, I am Amy Blue, Adult Services Librarian at the Antioch Public Library District, and I will be in charge of administering this group from now on. I won?t be attending most of the meetings, but I will be facilitating getting speakers, reserving the room and distributing writings for group critique.
I just wanted to remind you to get your writings to me by February 9 so I can copy them and/or distribute them to members in advance of the February 16 meeting. So please send me any pieces you want the group to critique at the next meeting.
Who are we? We're a group of people from all over NE IL/ SE WI who love to write. Our members come from all backgrounds, representing every stage of the writing process, from beginner to full-time writer. There are no limits on genre. Our members span the board, bringing in non-fiction, fiction, blogs, poems, essays, concept outlines, and so on. Meetings generally consist of members reading pieces they've written. They are then critiqued by the rest of the group. We strive to offer helpful tips for improving the author's work and skill as a writer. Sometimes we hold special events, including guest speakers and themed writing projects.
