Welcome to the Silver Spring Writer's Group Tuesday Meeting!
The Tuesday meetings are a great opportunity to get to know the writers in our group. With a more casual format than the Saturday meetings, we typically meet from 7pm - 8:30 pm ET on the fourth Tuesday of the month.
The meeting is divided into two parts:
(2) Targeted Discussion
Introductions is a time to introduce yourself, your work, and any issues you may be facing that you think your fellow writers can help with.
Targeted Discussion is just that - a chance to talk about anything and everything related to your writing, writing in general, literature as we know it today! Typically I'll try to provide a handout or resources focused on a particular area of writing (such as narrative structure, character, dialogue, etc). Sometimes we also do writing activities, where each individual will have approximately 20 minutes to write and then share (if you want!) with our colleagues to get additional ideas about what's working.
Focus for the 3/26/13: Crafting Creative Similes & Metaphors We'll have a discussion on similes and metaphors and some brief exercises to use them creatively which you can apply to your fiction, non-fiction, or poetic writing. What's a meta phor, anyways?!
I'm excited to have you come and looking forward to your contribution! Feel free to bring samples of your own writing and a friend!
