What we're about

This is a twice-monthly workshop for fiction writers who are serious about improving their skills and looking for immediate feedback on their projects from a group of like-minded writers.

We meet every other Tuesday at Gas Light Bar & Grill on Ludlow Street starting at 7pm and ending about 9pm. Please come early or stay late to socialize, we want to use our time to work through as many pieces as we can.

To workshop a piece, please bring up to 10 pages of double-spaced work to share with the RSVPed group members (minus one. Jim is forever RSVPed but no longer attends.) We will read aloud the work and critique as a group.

The group was founded in the late fall of 2017 where workshop hungry writers met downtown in the attic of a bar to share stories, drinks and their skills. The group has changed locations, members and leadership but we uphold the foundations of our founder, Jim. “I hope to create a supportive and friendly environment but with standards aimed at getting our work published. No memoirs. No furries. No porn.”

Gas Light Bar & Grill has a wonderful food and drink menu. We encourage our members to order something from them since the restaurant allows us to host our events there.

Please message Jordan with any questions.
