What we're about

The East Austin Writing Project is open to all writers who are 21+. We launched this adult writing space to create a supportive, constructive and creative space. Our group shares all styles of the literary art- poetry, prose, screenplays, etc. using an MFA-style format: group discussion with writer in "box."

Each workshop begins with a provided writing prompt; we write for 20 minutes then share (voluntary: 10-15 minutes) just for fun, no critique. Next we workshop the 3-4 writers’ work who signed up the previous month (5 minutes per poem, 7-10 minutes per story/essay and one minute for author to address the conversation). We discuss what works, suggested changes, theme, ideas, and such.

Additional Details:

• Zoom meetings are sent out the morning of the meetup to the email address you have associated with your Meet Up Account.

• All workshop participants will need access to the Google Drive folder that writers upload to. Please DM Marissa your email address via the meet up app or website.

• We cap RSVPs at 15ppl. If you cannot attend but did RSVP please un-RSVP so that someone on the waitlist can attend in your place.

• To receive the Zoom info you must RSVP for the workshop. Additionally, Zoom details are not posted on the event page. To ensure you receive the Zoom info, please RSVP at least two hours prior to the workshop start time - that is when Zoom info is sent.
