Clearwater Writers Meet-Up

  • Jul 29, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We meet at my home every other Tuesday, from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. (near Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater.) I provide chips and drinks. If you want to bring a finger-food snack to share, that would be great, but not necessary.

The first portion of our meeting is devoted to talking about topics of interest to writers of all genres, such as: • What’s new in the publishing industry, • What hot websites/blogs have been discovered, • Discussion/Information-sharing pertaining to articles we have read

During the second portion of our meeting, individuals are each given the opportunity to read from their work and receive verbal comments/critiques from the rest of the group. Interested members can also supply printed copies of their work to other members, who will then provide a more detailed, written critique of the work sample. Hope you can join us!

    It was nice to have met you all. I was very impressed with everyone's work and your critiques. I definitely would like to attend again when my schedule allows it.

    Sorry, BonSue for being late. My GPS steered me wrong.

    Fantastic, Welcoming group. Many genres, critiques are spot on. BonSue has great leadership skills and a wealth of knowledge. I will be at next meet.

    • BonSue B.

      Gee, thanks, Melody, but really, I'm only sharing articles that more knowledgeable people were kind enough to post on the Internet.

    In my opinion, the slight modifications we made to the Meet-Up, with regard to starting on time, keeping our introductions and critiques brief, and handing out copies of all work to be read before the meet-up, really helped keep the meeting moving so that everyone who wanted to read was able to do so and the meet-up still ended a few minutes BEFORE 10! I never fail to be impressed with the quality of the writing in this group, which in turn, inspires me to work harder on my own material. I'm already looking forward to our next meeting!

      Thanks for letting me know, Annie. There actually is no waiting list for this meet-up, as we had several cancellations. I reopened the RSVP list. See you next time!

    It is easy to "un-RSVP." Simply hit the green button in the upper right hand corner, when you add a comment that you aren't coming.

    I would love to attend. I have been wanting to go for a while, but conflicts or meeting caps have kept me away. I thought that attendance was capped at 18 last time, but I am having trouble finding those details now. I am listed as #21, so I don't think that I am official. If not, I will try for another time. Please let me know. - Thanks!

    I recently moved here from Chicago where I've been in a critique group for three years. I would like to visit to see if this would be a good fit for me. Please respond. Thanks. Joylinlane@ aol.com

    • BonSue B.

      Welcome, Joylin! Please join Clearwater Writers and RSVP for our next Meet-up. I hope you will enjoy our group, but if you decide it's not a good fit, just drop your name from the group. No hard feelings.

    Enjoyed last night. Reading for the first time did not turn out to be as bloody as I thought it might be.

    • Eli G.

      I enjoyed your reading.

  • Suzy P.

    Hi, I am looking forward to meeting other writers. I need the address. Thank you !

    July 18, 2014

    • BonSue B.

      Hi, Suzy - To keep my home address relatively private, I send out directions via an email the day before the meet-up to those members who have submitted an RSVP. See you soon!

  • Linda

    I will be traveling during the next meeting and look forward with great anticipation to getting together when I return. I felt absolutely inspired by you each of you and look forward to attending regularly when I'm in town. Much thanks and blessings.
