Use the prompt for a 3-5 paragraph story (or more, there's no limits on length, format, or even using the prompt). We will share what we've written by reading aloud around the table and talk writing in general and our own writing issues/needs for support.
We will run from 6:00p.m. to 7:00p.m, potentially longer if needed.
Hello! This group is intended for people in Golden or who can get to Golden that want to commit to a regular practice of writing and sharing their work with others.
I'm starting it because I want to keep the rust off my skills and meet people who have this compulsion - either professionally or for kicks.
While I have a B.A. in Creative Writing, I'm no expert and would love to find fellow writers who want to share the tools we do have and learn from one another no matter what type of writing we're doing. Since a critical part of the burden/joy of the creative spirit is feeding it with books, it would also be wonderful to be able to build into our meetings a reading component where we can discuss books, poems, short stories, and other written material that will make us stronger writers.
None of this is set in stone, though. I see the whole group as an evolving animal whose shape will be determined by the people who decide to take part and this includes the location and meeting schedule. My only plan is that we will agree to treat one another with kindness, read one another's work as asked, and provide the most helpful feedback we can.
