The past few weeks have been interesting to say the least. Here is an update.
Somehow, some lady took over the Meetup site and declared herself Organizer.
After several emails back and forth by our Assistant Organizer Tammy Gross with this mysterious lady, I was left with the feeling that the group Meetup site was lost to this lady, who I believe lives in Tampa.
Anyway, to keep from losing the group altogether I started a new Meetup site titled, Orlando Writer's Critique Group and emailed the old group about the change. Many of you did sign up at the new site.
A day or so later I received an email from the Meetup company saying that lady had stepped down as organizer of the old group and would I like to take it over?
So I did.
Now I am the proud owner of two Meetup sites about the exact same group.
I am thinking about starting other critique groups, maybe one near UCF and other locations. If so, I will use the new Meetup site for those locations.
Please let me know if you have any ideas about other good places to set up critique groups.
I am also considering the possibility of setting up a group where the focus is on publishing, marketing, and business concerns for writers. Again, please send me your feedback.
We will chat about most of this briefly AFTER the Tuesday, June 19th meeting at 7:00 pm at the Denny's on SR 436 and Oxford Road.
If you have any questions, please email me at [address removed] or [address removed].
