The Greater Cleveland Writers Meet up Group Monthly Meetup

  • This location is shown only to members

<p>We'll introduce new visitors, and do a quick recap of what every one is working on. Bring samples of your 'work' to share, or a question, a struggle, .... this group has a ton of experience, or at least a ton of empathy. Also, this is NOT just for children's fiction. Any writer is welcome, and genre. Sci-Fi, Fiction, Fantasy, Technical, Non-Fiction, you name it.... We will stay in the main area of books, but can also discuss freelancing to magazines, zines, blogging for fun and profit, you name it. Create a 30 second elevator speech on your work, and why some one should publish it.... and where? If you don't know what an elevator speech is, that's ok, once you join you can access an elevator speech template in our files section! Most importantly, what are you willing to do about getting published? Or what does being published mean to you. You'd be surprised how many writers never intend to make money from their writing, but just want to be published.
I'll also discuss what I find are the top 5 reasons most writers never publish, if things get dull, and so far they never have!. I will also cover 5 tactics you can use to get published.
Our home is at Vision 21 which is at: 1495 Warren Road, Lakewood, OH 44107.&nbsp; Questions or concerns email me [masked] Size is limited to 35 people. If you RSVP 'yes' please show up because we reserve space . I request every one who joins us to kick in $5, or bring an item to share. If things are tight, come anyway. These venues open their doors to us. Please be considerate. I know budgets are tight, but this keeps the venue eager to see us again next month.</p>

      Looks like Dave Van Horn... even the reminder e-mail had the wrong address. My time is so limited, I really hate having it wasted. I am part of Skyline ... a critique group that meets on the 2nd Sat of each month in Parma at 9:00 a.m. Next meeting is 9/14 at the Parma Ridge Library. Good group.

    Really fun; getting used to our new location. Many good works from poetry, to Query letters, fiction. Insightful commentary. Enjoyed the repartee after with everyone at the Rocky River Brewing Company.

    I too showed up at the address in question...since there was no indication that it was the Hanna Bldg. in the orginal posting and e-mail reminder, walked around a while looking for something called Vision 21. Saw a small sign on the front door of the Hanna building indicating that people for Vision 21 should come in the back door....and it was locked. Very disappointing.

      Vision 21 recently moved to their new location at 20220 Center Ridge, the new location of the meetup since last month. It was somewhat abrupt, as the building Vision 21 was occupying was sold, and Vision 21 had to move with short notice. I suppose one of the meetup organizers should change the address on the page.
