Write In (Workshop Style)

Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder to update your RSVP!  If you can't make it, let us know.

This will be a writing workshop for current projects. It is intended as an intensive look at current projects (bring 8 to 10 pages), which is a little different than our regular high level critique sessions.

We will do an out-of-the-box group writing exercise and then break into groups of 5 or fewer to workshop current projects. We will do an exercise on character development, which will be either dialogue based or a character interview.

See you Saturday.

    I just noticed there are membership dues. Is it $10 for EACH meetup event? Or does $10 last forever as long as we stay in the group?

      Hi jade. Technically it is 10 a year but very lightly enforced. Why don't you come see how you like the group and go from there.

    I am still brainstorming ideas for the writing exercise. I am leaning toward either dialogue or character interviews. Anyone have a preference for one or the other or suggestions for exercises? Let's discuss. I will be sending out the specific exercise and a reminder tomorrow.

    Please update your RSVPs!

    July 31, 2013

    • Drew

      I tend to write a lot of dialogue. I don't know if I've come up with a character yet that takes to interviews of any sort. (Which is weird since my "writing style" lends itself toward throwing sticking people in a place and having them yell at each other.)

    Oh, cool. I hope I'm in town for this one.

    Any genre is fine for the critique pieces. Please bring 4 to 5 copies of your work. The max word count is 1000 words. Shoot for 3 to 5 type written pages.

      Sorry 8 to 10 pages. This is a longer critique. Shorter pieces are fine. I shoot for 3 to 5 pages so there is more time for discussion.

      July 31, 2013

  • Rick C.

    How many pages? Maximum word count?
