A McMansion in the Wilderness

Hi Writers,

Let's do this again on Wednesday, August 21, at 6:30 at Half Lounge. Look out for sunshine, in which case, we'll be in City Hall Park. See you then!

    I'd like to thank everyone for the feedback last night. It was very helpful. I'm looking for some type of workshop, hopefully not too far away, where I could learn more about the technical aspects of writing fiction. Any suggestions/recommendations?

      I also forgot to mention yesterday, John, that I just finished a book in which the narrator is translating "A Picture of Dorian Gray" into Spanish, and he drops in passages from the novel that reflect his own state. It's similar to your story in that way. Want me to photocopy some key scenes?

      Thanks for the recommendations. And I'd love to see the scenes you mentioned. If it's possible/easier for me to Google them, I'm happy to save you the trouble of photocopying ... but I'd love to see them, either way. THANKS!

    It was nice being in the park. The noise level made it harder to hear, but it was pleasant.

    Something's come up and I can't make it to the meeting tonight. See you at the next one.

    Very sorry to have to do this. My poems are on for 8/21 but i found out today that I have to drive a family member to Boston for an emergency medical thing. So sorry to be canceling like this. Maybe someone has writing they can submit to take my place? I can see about getting on the schedule again later

    As a newbie,
    I also would like to know if McMansion is the name of the group or the assignment.

    August 18, 2013

    • Peter B.

      Nope. McMansion is an arbitrary title. Take a look at my response to Deena and you will find info on what to read for the next meeting.

      August 18, 2013

  • Deena

    Am I missing how one identifies the work to be read for a particular meet up? It seems sometimes people put a meeting date in their file description and sometimes don't. What is the method to this madness?

    August 18, 2013

    • Peter B.

      Hi Deena! Check Burlingtonwritersworksho­p.com/schedule and find the two names next to the meeting in question. Then find the most recent files posted by those writers in the files section. Let me know if you need more info. Thanks!

      I know but there is no waiting list... Maybe I should start my own writing group..... : (

      August 11, 2013

    • Peter B.

      All of our workshops normally have waiting lists. For some reason, this one did not. I have changed that.

      August 11, 2013

  • Kathy P.

    I have just joined and the 8/21 meeting will be my first. Is there anything I need to know? I know there is reading to be done beforehand-where do I find the tab?

    July 21, 2013

    • Peter B.

      The reading material will be posted in the "files" section, which is located under the "more" tab by the preceding Sunday. We're looking forward to meeting you!

      July 21, 2013

    • Peter B.

      If you haven't done so already, please check out Burlingtonwritersworksho­p.com.
