This MeetUp is for writers of all levels wishing to improve their craft with the goal of publication. The primary focus is contemporary fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry. Genre writers whose work might appeal to a broader audience are welcome. Depending on interest, subgroups for genre writers may be possible but we would need a group leader for each.
At this time (the middle of the COVID pandemic!) there will be no in-person meetings. We will be having online meetings using Google Meets. Google Meets requires a gmail account, which is free. I selected Google Meets because it is web-based (no download to your computer) and because I am also going to try to incorporate features of Google Classroom in the future (such as a discussion board).
Writing and reading occurs outside of meeting times. I am open to accountability discussions and goal setting if people would find these helpful. At this time there are three meetings monthly. Each has a different focus: fiction, poetry, and reading. Fiction and poetry workshop meetings are used to give constructive feedback on members work. Each month the reading group will discuss a prize-winning novel with a focus on structure and style.
Google Classroom: zksagoe (We use this location to share work and feedback forms. It is under development. You can go to the site and use the code above to join.)
House Hosts: If you would be able to host an in-person meeting (whenever we are out of this pandemic), please let me know. Ideally if we have a few locations, we can reduce the burden on single individuals for hosting.
