For this meeting, we suggest you write a story about July 4 or July 14. It could be one of any number of genres: drama, romance, science fiction, comedy, thriller, etc. But, please note that you do not have to write on any particular topic. Instead, you can bring anything you're working on. Writers will read their work at the meeting, not to exceed about 1200 words in length. We offer a light critique. Our intentions are to share and encourage.
