    I appreciate how the organizers instruct and remind us to be sensitive to the fact that we are discussing someone's art. The critiques were insightful, thought-provoking and challenging. I got some ideas that will help my creative process just listening to the critiques of other's work, so even if you don't have a piece ready for critique it's still worth your time to come and listen. I was inspired by this meeting because I felt that everyone who offered an opinion did so with no other intention than to help another writer. I think everyone understood that writers who submit unfinished works to other writers put themselves in an incredibly vulnerable place and they treat that trust with respect. I look forward to attending the next Meetup.

    25 people showed up, 8 were new people. All 4 writers attended for critiques. A large group joined us for drinks and dinner afterwards.

    James: We meet from 2 to 5. First half is "craft chat." Topic will be on "audience...who is your audience and how the heck do you find them? " Then a 10-15 minute break to chat up other writers. Finally, submission reviews. There are four pieces this time. We offer positive commentaries first, then "constructive crticisms," and if time permits, "nitpicking." Hope to see you there.

    I've been looking to meet up with some writers in Philly -- as it can be such a lonely occupation in its way -- so maybe I'll stop by. Anything I should expect? There isn't a ton of information here.

    To answer the ghost writer question, yes, although our members probably want to write their own stories, but if the idea is so compelling, who knows?

    1 · August 2, 2012

  • Steve

    No more than 4000... approximately.

    1 · August 2, 2012

  • Worthy Notables

    I have a question; do our short stories have to be exactly 4000 words or no more than 4000 words?

    Looking for someone to "ghost write" a book for me. Have a great idea, not the expertise to carry it off. Would this be the forum to meet someone?

    Announcement! For the September 1st Meeting we will have author Elisa Ludwig speak to us. Her recently published YA title "Pretty Crooked" just came out from Harper Collins. (1st of a trilogy) She will talk about her road to publishing, her writing process and her new book. I saw her at her book signing/ teen workshop at B&N and asked her to come see us. More info at www.elisaludwig.com By the way her book is very entertaining.

    I really enjoyed my first meetup, and to think I was nervous. Everyone was friendly and the atmosphere was easy going. I loved the whole program and is looking forward to the next meetup

    Sure thing! Sorry you won't be able to make it next weekend, but hope to see you there, soon. It's a fantastic group, extremely well run and a really good mix of people.

    thanx Amie:)

    I've attended 2X, not an organiser, so speaking from experience, not authority:-). But my understanding is that because this is part of the Meet-up system, and some groups in the system require tix, you see that tab. But I've never heard of the writers' group using them. It's free, but at the meetings I've been to, most people throw $1 in the pot to help defray the admin costs for Julius. Hope this helps!
