The group is based Liverpool for people interested in writing. I am looking for people who would like to meet up in a laid-back atmosphere to talk about their work, be it books they have written and released or not. This meet up will be very relaxed. People who want to write but aren't sure where to start are more than welcome. Whether you write and release independently or write for fun just for yourself at home, I'd love to meet you. If you are looking for a group where you want to really critique somebodies work and pick apart peoples writing styles then this group is *not* for you. There are a number of groups that are perfect for that and I have no problem with them but these groups can be very daunting for new authors. I want to create an atmosphere where we encourage each other and help those who are unsure about their writing and want a bit of encouragement. If you want to take the step into publishing your own work or just want to meet like-minded people and have a chat about writing then come along and make some new friends. Help me turn this first page, you never know what amazing worlds await us...
The April Laid-Back Writers Meetup will be held in the upstairs function room of the Ship & Mitre on Dale Street, on Sunday 28 April at midday.
Please do bring along a short excerpt to read out from whatever you are currently writing, up to around 750 - 1,000 words.
This month's writing prompt, for anyone who would like one: the hoax.
Please bring £1.00 to help towards Meetup.com fees if you can.
Do RSVP if you intend to come, and un-RSVP in good time if you later realise that that you can't make it.
I look forward to seeing you there, whether you're a newcomer or a regular!
Accessibility note: the function room is up a flight of stairs.
