During the meetup, we write with pen and paper to prompts for short bouts (usually 2-7 minutes). After each bout, we pass the mike around for anyone who wants to read. There's no critique. Our focus is on getting words on paper, supporting the creative process, and having fun.
Bring your favorite pen and notebook, but please leave your laptop at home. If you need assistive tech, please bring whatever you need and let the leader that day know when you arrive so you don't get plied with spare notebooks and extra pens.
We focus on the creativity and support, not critique.
There's no degree of separation. No fame. No ego. Just writers writing. Authentic. Whimsical. Vulnerable. "It's all true, none of it's true, don't ask."
RSVPs are optional - RSVP if you a have a chance, but please feel free to join us without an RSVP.
Park free in the ramp for an hour and a half. The Midtown Global Market is also easy to get to by bus (check out the 21) or bike (close to the Midtown Greenway bike trail).
We encourage our members to sign up to lead for a morning or more. We need volunteers to keep the group going. Go on...sign up! It's fun (and easy).
We have been meeting every week since March of 2007.
Please join us! We always welcome newcomers!
We also have a blog for regular Saturday participants to share their work. You can read our stuff here:
