Writing is a lonely pursuit. We all have busy lives and wear different hats to accommodate the needs of our day-to-day existence. So why not use the time to focus on our writing goals together as a group? Whether you are working on a scholarly dissertation, evocative poem, or existential novel, you are welcome to join this meetup. The goals of this meetup are to ensure we get the time to work on our writing pursuits and to meet other passionate writers to support one another.
Different kinds of writing projects in terms of format and genre are welcomed: blog entrees, short stories, screenwriting projects, fiction, nonfiction, cross-genre. Our common similarity is our passion that we have for our respective writing projects. We will start each session by briefly discussing our projects, our goals for our projects, and our current state in the writing process. Then, we will focus on spending at least a couple of hours working on our respective writing projects, as it often proves challenging to set aside time to work on them daily. Critique sessions can be incorporated into our meetups, if need be, or the time can be used for socializing with the ultimate goal being for us to work on our passions in a more social environment.
This meetup will be held at The Lost Parrot in South Pasadena. I will give the detail here.
Here is the address: 1929 Huntington Dr, South Pasadena, CA 91030.
The nearest cross street is Fletcher Dr., and there is plenty of street parking.
Please make a purchase to support the venue, as the owners are very kind to provide their coffeehouse for our meetup. The food and coffee are wonderful, and the venue has a homey feel.
Please feel free to work on your writing project, whether it be a research paper or fiction or poetry. Usually we chat for a bit before and after the 2 hour session, but the priority is getting at least a couple hours of work done. This coffee house does not have WIFI, so please plan accordingly.
Please note that I will ask for at least 3 people to attend each meetup session to secure one of the large tables. Try to RSVP so that I get a good idea as to how many people are attending. The RSVP closes an hour before the meetup.
