The Ashland Writers' Group is for working writers who are serious about their professional development. It's a supportive space for constructive feedback that will help us deepen our relationship with our words and ourselves. Any aspect of the written word is welcome.
How we do it
See the Discussions section, and help us come up with a process that works for all, and a good meeting time.
We haven't met since March 2020 and I'd like to try resuming activity starting now, December 2020, using Zoom until next spring when most of us will have been vaccinated (I hope) and we can start meeting face to face again. I'm thinking of writers' readings and verbal feedback, every two weeks, similar to our former meetings except we won't be distributing written copies for mark-up.
Anyone with a written excerpt to present (try for 1500 words or less) can read their piece aloud. We'll spend up to 10 minutes on free comment.
We used to meet at 2:15pm on alternate Sundays. Does that time work for you, or not? Weigh in in the discussions group. When we have a consensus, I'll schedule the meetup. Other Ideas: I'm also considering a Guided Prompt format on the intervening week, which looks like this: we write for 20 minutes in response to a prompt, which might be a topic, or a first line, for example. Then anyone who wants to can read their piece. What do you think? See you in the discussions.
