San Antonio Writer's Meetup

For this meeting, we suggest you write a story based on this "squirrelly" premise: someone manufactures mechanical squirrels with built-in surveillance equipment that can be used to spy on people from ground or tree level, much as drones can be used for surveillance from the air. It could be one of any number of genres: science fiction, comedy, thriller, etc. Have some fun with it!

However, note that you do not have to write on the suggested topic. Instead,  you can bring anything you're working on. Writers will read their work at the meeting, not to exceed about 1200 words in length. We offer a light critique. Our intentions are to share and encourage.

    One of the best, partly because the other tables weren't noisy and we could hear all the GREAT pieces members were reading! Good feedback for MY secondhand mémoir, too!

    I'm sorry everyone. A work commitment came up suddenly that I need to prepare for. I was looking forward to it.

    Sadly I can not attend because of work changing my schedule last minute. :[ I'm very put-out about it. But I will have more time to get all my mechanical-squirrels in a row for next time.

    Would it be acceptable form to bring a laptop for taking notes? I don't wish to disrupt the group dynamic in any way, if paper is the norm I'm happy to comply.

      Some bring laptops or iPads to read from. Most read from a paper printout. You are welcome to take notes on your laptop.
