Come join your fellow writers, Sundays at Uncle George's Tavern!
This will be the 2nd Sunday meeting of the Astoria Writer's Group. During the first one, we decided to try to keep the meetups fairly small, <8 people.
During this meeting, we will hear from Mr. Todd Johnson reading the first chapter of his novel, The Velveteen Werewolf, as well as from Mr. Steve Monosson, reading the first chapter of his novel, The Ballad of Piechart John. Come out, have a beer (or tea) with us, give them feedback, encouragement and constructive criticism.
If you would like to have your work critiqued during this meeting, please write "SUNDAY," followed by your name and the title of your work in the uploads. Each person at the meeting should read the SUNDAY works before the meeting, and should bring them in on paper or in digital form so that we can all edit the works together.
Feel free to post ideas, requests, complaints, grumblings - whatever!- in the comments, so we can make these meetings better and better. Also, friend me on facebook (search Alexei Soma), where I am starting an Astoria Writer's Group facebook page.
Finally, big shout-out to Gerald Olouman who traveled all the way from BOSTON to attend the first meeting. He was late, but we had a cup of tea afterwards. He's awesome and I hope he visits us again.
Yours most sincerely,
