The Clarksville Writers Meetup Monthly Meetup

Welcome All Writers and Visitors,

(Contributing Writers, Please take a look at the 'Writers Guidelines' under the 'Pages' tab.) Our regular monthly meeting is on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Come early if you can. We are learning, helping, and gaining new friends and links to the writing world. You do not have to be a member to sit in on our meetings. You do not have to read aloud to attend the meetings, You do not have to bring anything, you do not have to sign anything. You may still participate in reading and critiquing the work of others.

Consider participating in the monthly writing challenges and/or exercises, and please check the Pages and Discussion boards periodically (Good information).

We meet in a public place, so be prepared to self-edit your work as needed to fit our venue (chances are we'll be reading along anyway, so the group will know why you skipped that one word sentence ;) ). If you would like a live critique, bring copies for other members to follow and mark with feedback. Copies should be typed, single-sided, and double spaced with a 12 pt. font. Please number your pages. 10 copies to pass should be adequate. All copies should be returned to the writer at the end of the discussion.

Typically those who have something prepared in writing will read it for critique. Those who have properly prepared copies will read first. They have gone to the most effort and expense. If you do not have copies, we ask that you wait until the prepared pieces are finished.

No one's writing is perfect so don't hesitate to bring your work. Helping each other and learning is what its all about. Be sure to let the group know what type of feedback you are looking for (ie grammar and line edits versus plot and character believability)

      Thanks for sharing it -- I think a lot of us could relate to it. Hope to see you next time.

    Our meeting began with an intriguing poem from an absent member, and was followed with a nonfiction book excerpt, a speculative fiction selection, and finally a nonfiction article. Again, I am impressed by how positively this group responds to different genres as well as by the insightful comments.
