For anyone who is writing fiction (mainly) and looking to discuss their work, share ideas and news in an accepting and supportive environment. We are all at different stages in our writing journeys and we value that diversity. We are a small group that have been meeting for over a year and want to make it an even better experience! We have been meeting one evening a month in a booked room in a pub in Central Bath. We place a high value on meeting up in person and would want any new Meetup members to share that goal. We tend to circulate work for discussion ahead of the meeting. We have also looked at writing tips and exercises as well as shared knowledge and experience of the business of writing. It's fun and what we do is determined by the people who attend. If you're interested please drop us a message and tell us about you and your writing.
Sunny has kindly put together a workshop for us on Story, inspired by the work of Kurt Vonnegut and Robert McKee. We will look at plot types and anatomy, and the two axes of story and character wellbeing. Sunny will illustrate with examples, and would welcome yours. As always, it will be a chance for us to bring our own thoughts and challenges, and explore ideas.
As it's a discussion session, I've increased the numbers.
We will workshop members' work at this Meetup; please let Debbie know if you'd like to submit a piece of your writing. If you're new to the group, come along and see how it all works - we generally look at 2 or 3 pieces per Meetup; read in advance. We're friendly and informal, and feedback is constructive. Any ideas for topics for future sessions, bring them along too to discuss.
