Saturday Six

  • Daz Bog Coffee

    Cherry and Mason St, Fort Collins, CO (map)

    40.592159 -105.078850

  • We'll be downstairs
  • Hello all,

    Are you up for the challenge?

    The premise is simple. Meet on Saturday at 9:00 a.m., a writing prompt will be given, and each participant cranks out six hundred words in two hours. We'll spend the last hour reading the work. No critiques just positive reinforcement.

    To motivate people to get up early and write there will be a prize each session. The criteria for winning will be on how well you stuck to the writing prompt. To be eligible to win you must write a complete short fiction piece of at least six hundred words and agree for it to be published on After you've taken time to edit and polish it of course.

    The winner gets a $25 gift card of their choice.

    Topic/phrase and prize winning criteria will be announced at the meeting.

    Looking forward to seeing you,

Join or login to comment.

    Please please have a Saturday Six closer to me! I live in SouthEast Loveland and your meeting place in FoCo is just too far for me to make it. I could really use the practice and constructive comments.

      Sorry.... I understand it's about churning out 600 words or more which is really what I need. I don't know the first thing about getting that started! Anyone interested in taking off with it? Windsor/Loveland would be great.....

    Hello all, I think it best to cancel the challenge for tomorrow. With only three people it won't be much of a challenge. I'll attempt to personally email everyone who is still listed as coming. Thanks, Ben

    Hi all
    It looks like I won't be able to make it next Saturday after all. Something has come up. I won't be needing a prompt myself. Hope to see you in September or October!

    Hi all- For some reason I've not been getting notifications of RSVPs and thought there was no one attending. I then realized it was Tour De Fat and Labor day weekend and also realized I will be moving that day, so I canceled our spot at Daz Bog. I now, however, see that 3 of you have I will not be able to make it but I encourage you all to go and meet and I could help you out with a prompt of there are several websites that do it to. Sorry about all this. I look forward to seeing more of you on our Sept.14th meet up!

      Do provide us with a prompt but not too soon so that we won't be thinking about it too far ahead of time.

    I'll most likely be bringing a guest. DiAyn Revis recently joined our Red Feather Lakes writer's group and took my spot at Saturday Six Last July when I was unable to attend. She loves the challenge as much as I do. Can't wait to be there!
