What we're about

Bring your poetry, your novels, your short stories, your songs, your spoken word, your prose, your inspiration. Join us in creating a vibrant and supportive community of writers. Bring your passion, your creativity, and your inspiration to our gatherings. We look forward to connecting with you! This group is an opportunity for creative writers to come together and support one another as we take risks and developiour skills and confidence as writers. We will hold open meetings to share our writing art and inspire one other. Meetings may vary from small focused group discussions (5-8 people) to larger gatherings for play and creative exploration. Bring your ideas for activities to invigorate the group and feel free to suggest venues you have found inspiring. We can encourage one another in creating our own goals for our writing and checking in with one another on progress toward those goals (in person and through the online community). Please share your preferences for meeting times - weekends versus weekdays, mornings, afternoons, or evenings. Please also let me know how frequently you would enjoy meeting. I look forward to connecting with you and building a thriving community together. Wishing you a joy-filled and inspiring day of writing!

CRITIQUE NIGHT!

Zoto's Diner

As the title suggests, we're bringing back critique night. Please join us at Zoto's. Any questions, please message me or you can text me at[masked]. Please identify yourself if you text me so I can verify you are a member of our group. UPDATE: please follow the following criteria: *Up to 10 pages *DOUBLE SPACED *On one side of the page *1-inch margins *12 point font in Arial, Courant or Times New Roman fonts. The reason for the specificity is to make sure we keep it fair. If someone plays with spacing, font sizes or margins to get more writing into the critique, that isn't fair to the other people in the group. This is a restaurant, so please be aware that you should purchase something to patronize the business. Also, because this is a restaurant, anyone who rsvp’s and then does not show up without changing their rsvp or otherwise letting us know will not be allowed to attend future events at this location or other restaurants we may go to. Lastly, this is a business space, so please bring appropriate content accordingly (hint: keep it pg-13 please). Hope to see you there!

Creative Writers Ambler Meetup

Upper Dublin Public Library

At this Meetup, we'll gather as a group to share our experiences with writing during the month. We'll share ideas and resources and offer encouragement about writing and the process of developing our projects - for ourselves or for publication. We'll also take some time to do writing prompt exercises or other fun writing activities as a way to increase our spontaneity, gain energy and inspiration, and have fun together. If you have ideas for fun writing exercises we can do together, please bring them! We will be meeting once per month, on the 2nd Monday at 7:00 p.m. As we have had issues with people RSVP'ing and not showing up, please bring your writing tools with you. To make sure that we are not sitting around with nothing left to talk about, if less than five people have shown up by 7:15, we will convert our regular meeting into a Write Night meeting. We apologize if this seems abrupt, but we take care in preparing writing exercises and discussion topics that are really meant for larger groups, so when we have 18 RSVPs and only 4 people show up, that leaves a lot of extra time to fill up. Some people have traveled an hour or more to come to the meeting, so we needed to create a back up plan so the meeting would still be productive for everyone.
