    Great meet-up, and the open discussion actually gave me some interesting angles to pursue with my current work.

    I enjoyed meeting the meetup members and hearing about their work. It was interesting, too, to see how the critique session worked. I'd like to attend the next meetup.

    I just want to know that what I write matters and is read; and people really enjoy it.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
