    Hi Group,
    I wanted to share this contest with you guys. I don't know how relevant it will be but I intend to enter and hope to submit a synopsis at our next meeting, if not in February.
    AARP-HUFF/Post 50 Memoir contest. To see the official rules and details visit huff.to/memoir.

    There were 30 attending with 8 new people. We improvised the craft chat this month but with help it went off well with Nick's insights & 4 critiques.

    Hi! I'm new in the Philly area and hoping to join your group this Saturday! If there's anything I can do before I arrive or anything I should bring with me, let me know.

      George, take a look at the "Pages" tab at the top of the this web page. No, you don't need to bring anything. See you there.

    Just wondering is this on the honor code or do we need to sign something so someone doesn't take someone else's idea?

    December 2, 2013

    • Steve

      Honor code. The possibility of someone getting an member's idea and actually writing a complete manuscript and actually publishing it is remote. But it is a good question. There is a whole cannon of copyright law to protect actual written works, nothing covers an idea.

    • Steve

      Take a look at the "Pages" tab at the top to get more details about the group. Look forward to seeing you. And yes, I think that you have a good book idea.

    Hi everybody,
    Getting serious about writing now that I am not employed. Anyone else interested in writing biography?

      Hi Melissa, this is my first meetup for this group. I am interested in writing a book of about 10-12 biographies. Gigi

    Hi All, I just received one of the short stories back from a contest I entered and would love to submit it for a group critique. Am I too late???

    Can anyone suggest a good place to write? I would ideally like a private conference room, hotel room or B&B with a desk and a lovely view of countryside. I would like the option of going only during the day and not having to stay overnight. I just need to get out of my house so I don't get distracted by everything/everyone there. Any suggestions are appreciated. Anywhere in the greater Philadelphia area will work.

      Hi Paula, I cannot help on the view of the county side, but the Gryphon Cafe in Wayne, Pa has a great second floor conference room. It just might do the trick, and the food is great.

    I look forward to seeing everyone next week!!!

    Take care!!!

    Sadly I won't be able to make this, as I am going away for work. Have fun and see you at the next one!

    • Eric

      Sadly, me too. I have a business trip on the same weekend as the December Meetup. I'm tempted to say it seems like going cold turkey, but I'd rather avoid the shame of making a bad pun.

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.
