    It was an experience that I enjoyed and very informative. I can appreciate a group such as The PWMG.

    Our New Year's meeting was well attended with 34 total and 7 new people. We discussed our writing New Year's resolution and tips for motivation. A dozen made it to the Marathon Grill for dinner and drinks and some stayed and watched the Eagles almost win after dinner. Remember John Dixon will speak in March. His book Phoenix Island releases this week and his CBS show Intelligence based on it debuts Tuesday night at 9. Went to his launch party today in West Chester and it was great with several hundred attending.

    I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my submission. All of the suggestions that I received will be taken seriously.

    Good session. All the stories were well constructed, with only minor overgrowth to blur or suffocate the structure. I learned a lot by the clear sequencing of events in each piece, the clear differences between characters, and the well vectored endings. In fact, I thought each ending resolved a cycle with a touch of mystery. The morally deranged orphan going off on his own again at the end of the world…the mother's oversized spell of woe…and the uncivilized, not quite feral, college graduate taking the road into the unknown. The only thing certain, was that he was going to take more bumps on the head! In fact, all endings had that kind of dreadful, understated and
    stunning promise. The poem, with it's immediate and unrelenting darkness, cut across the grain of the prose. It lacked idealism. It had a haunting grace at the bottom of life.

    Excellent first meeting for me! The Philadelphia Writers Group is welcoming, well organized, informative, constructive AND inspiring! Most definitely, it feels to be a safe space in which to foster creativity with like minded souls. Looking forward to the next one...many thanks, guys...Lisa B.

    Where do you park?

    • Annie A.

      Also the garage at Love Park, which is kind of gross but cheaper (I think $8 if you leave at a certain time).

      January 4, 2014

    • Eric

      The garage near 15th and Vine is $5 on weekends. It's an easy walk to the Meetup, but a little farther away than the other suggested garages.

  • Bernadette P.

    Hello, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone! If nothing else comes up, I probably will be there on Saturday. Although I have not submitted anything yet, I really like coming. I really like listening to new ideas from everyone. Once my fear leaves I will submit something.

    Hi all - looking forward to meeting some local Philly writers. I'm a fiction novlist who's been out of the game for a while and hoping to get those creative juices flowing again through contact, conversation, and inspiration from new friends with this shared passion...
