Socialize, Share, Read, Listen, and Critique with Other Writers

  • This location is shown only to members

Come and join me to read your own works or to listen to others people's writings (a brief snippet in most cases) and then offer suggestions, advice, or critiques.

As an author and successful publisher myself (owner of 2 mid-level publishing companies), I would like to provide you, the writer and author, with my knowledge and help. And since the mentoring meetings have been such a success I would like to provide you our members with an additional evening for socializing, critiquing, and sharing.

Everything from fiction, non-fiction, to poetry is acceptable.

Or maybe you just want to chat with other writers, to share experiences, disappointments, joyous news, in a non-frightening and non-stressful meeting. There are no set agendas with this meeting just to share.

We all know that writing is a solitary and sometimes lonely affair, come and share with others who are engaged in the same journey as yourself.

Everyone is both welcome and encouraged to bring their work to share with others for constructive criticism. This is a fun, friendly, and laid-back group.

I look forward to meeting you when you attend.

For those of you who want to write but do not have an idea but would like to join a team and work on a book now, then you may find one of the two other meetings at this exact same time and same place. The three overlap and have many of the same points so I can do them all together; also many times people RSVP that they will attend and then do not show up. Since they have not changed their RSVP from "yes", I have shown up and sat for an hour alone since even though there were several RSVPs "Yes" nobody came. With multiple meetings, I am at least assured of somebody there.:) In conclusion - Please do not worry about the fact there are 4 meetings at the same time and place, I can handle all very easily and will give you my undivided attention. Just sign up for the one or ones that you are interested in so that I can prepare subject specific material if need be.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
