Next Meetup

Let's Write
We'll meet, write, share, respond. Along the way, we will discuss things like motivation, how to give/receive feedback, organizing longer projects, specific troubleshooting, or anything else that comes up and is of interest. I will be in the room from 6:30 pm, half hour before the group starts, and would like to welcome you to come early if you want. If it is your first time coming to the group, this is a good opportunity to meet me, and ask any questions, etc. (I have anxiety about going to places for the first time, so if this is you, I totally get it and will do my best to help you feel relaxed and comfortable.)

What we're about

We will meet once a week (most weeks) with the intention of writing and sharing. Writing and editing are two separate activities which are often done at the same time: we mentally cross out words and dismiss ideas before they even make it to the paper. For many people, the simple act of showing up and writing is enough. For others, it will be a means of creating first drafts or potential areas to explore further.

The group is suitable for new or experienced creative writers.

The basic structure is that I will provide a topic, prompt or exercise that we will use as a starting point to write for a set length of time and then, those interested may share and receive feedback. (You can always 'pass' but most people read most of the time.)

What I hope to do is provide a group that everyone looks forward to participating in.

The cost is on a sliding scale of $5 to $15 per session; if you can't pay the $15, please let me know what you can pay and we'll work something out. If you can't pay the $5, then talk to me about that, too...I'm always up for a good barter/trade; there are so many reasons to not write...I don't want lack of money to be one of them.

I have been leading writing groups for over ten years. We love new people, so please join us any time. You don't have to commit to coming every's perfectly fine to drop in as you like.

Come write with us!
