2. Introductions as necessary, to include:
B. Writing aspirations.
C. What you would like to get from these meetings.
3. Optional assignment for those who need a nudge:
On March 2, 1904, Theodore Geisel was born in Springfield, Massachusetts. Mr. Geisel was better known as Dr. Seuss, the author and illustrator of many beloved children’s books, such as “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham.” His books are renowned for their whimsical rhymes and quirky characters. Write about the influences of Dr. Seuss. If your muse is feeling a little antsy, go ahead and create a few quirky characters of your own.
4. Share work for feedback. Please don’t let a lack of work keep you from attending. It is our mission to help you light that spark . If you post work ahead of time in The Reviewing Arena on the Message Board under the “Discussions” link at the top of your screen, we’ll be able to provide more constructive reviews based on detailed analysis.
5. A little spontaneous conjuring to release any excess creative energy that may be bubbling around in the room.
6. Open forum. Topics could include, but are not limited to:
A. Rites of passage.
B. Those dreaded demons of doubt.
C. Myths and symbols.
Let the creativity flow from your soul!
