February Writers' Group

Let's dust off our winter work and bring it out for perusal as spring beckons! Prose and poetry welcome, critiquing skills essential, if you'd like written feedback (always more helpful, I think) bring at least 7 copies.
We'll be at the back of the cafe, table booked under Helen... there is no charge for the group but please be prepared to buy at least a drink. If you respond yes but then can't make it, please let me know asap beforehand so I can adjust table booking accordingly.

    I'm continually amazed at how effective non-professional writers groups (as opposed to paid editors) can be in providing multi-point feedback to participants. It's fascinating to see how one piece of writing (from anyone) will generate such diverse responses and reactions.

    Continuing my minor gripette re non-cancellers... we had a great meeting last time, but 6 people who said they were coming ended up as no-shows, YOU know who you are - including the person who said she was bringing a guest!
    So please, if you can't come, or aren't sure, please let me know (as a couple other considerate people did). If I book a table for 16 and then there are only 10, it's not fair on the cafe staff, plus some people who would have liked to come get put off by the massive numbers.

    Bonjour John, comment allez vous? I'm writing you to ask for your help in asking your members if they know anyone who would be interested in being a fashion journalist intern. They would write fashion articles on a monthly basis. They must be able to read/write in English and be able to proof-read their material before submitting for publication. NOTE: This is a non-union and non-salary internship, but in exchange the intern will receive credits towards their journalist CV and exposure as a journalist. If interested please forward a photo, sample fashion article, and contact information to: [masked] Thank you for your help John. Bonne soiree!

    Looks like a great group this time--wish I could be there!

    I finish work at 7.30pm tomorrow evening which means I may only be able to make it for 8.15ish. I would still love to come. Is it ok for the group for me to come even though it will be late? I will make all efforts for a quiet entrance...

      grand, very considerate of you to warn us in advance!

    I'll be there, perhaps a bit late. You know me: It will probably be something music-related. I'm sure you guys are tired of hearing my silly stories about my crazy (but, fun and eventful) life.

    I will try and make this but I am unsure since this is my last week at work and they want me to do some admin and sign things so I may just be really late. Hope to see all tomorrow, if i come on time i'd like to bring a short poem.

    Bonjour, p.s. I just wanted to mention that I will hold a meeting of the interested journalist on Saturday, 23Feb2013 at 4pm to discuss the magazine and meet the other journalist. Meet at Metro station Montgallet. There are benches there in case people are running late for the meeting.

    Bonjour, comment allez vous? I am in need of some journalist interns for my new fashion blog magazine concept to write fashion sense articles like in the magazine Vogue. I hope this group can help me? This position is great for high school or universtity students. Please note that this is a non-salary position and can only give you exchange in exposure and credit towards your journalist CV. If interested please forward your interest letter:[masked]

    Thank you for your time and consideration!

    Sincerely,
