Announcing a new Meetup for Oak Park Writers, Artists & Musicians!
What: Last Hurrah (until next time?) Meetup
When: May 21,[masked]:15 PM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
As I announced a few weeks ago, I am seeking to relinquish my crown as Organizer (though remain a member of the group). So this is likely the last meeting with me organizing/hosting it.
Anyone who is interested in taking the reins, definitely come.
Anyone who is new to the group and wants to get into the swing, definitely come.
Anyone who is experience writer's or artist's block, definitely come. That's one thing this group has been great for -- getting stalled artists revved up again.
Anyone who wants to hear a bit (or a bit more) about my adventures in self-publication (which is turning into a fascinating journey), definitely come.
Come with examples of your work -- photos of artwork, examples of your writing (either that you feel work or that you feel need critiquing), brochures if you're a performer. Have business cards to share, if you have them. This is whether you've attended before or are new.
I've scheduled the meeting for 7:15pm, although I usually get there by 7:00pm. We tend to go for about 2 hours, and it works out okay if you wander in late . . . as well as if you want to continue to hang out until closing time (9:30pm).
PLEASE NOTE: I've taken off the option to RSVP "Maybe" because, to be honest, the Maybes almost never show, and so they are just taking up space on the RSVP list. The deadline to RSVP is very close to the meeting (just 2 hrs before), so if you initially RSVP "No," you can change it to "Yes" at almost the last minute.
