Squirrel Hill Writers' Group

  • Jun 2, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Who's up: Geri


We are being offered free use of the meeting room, and are therefore guests.  The Children's Institute has asked that we not park in their lot (handicapped members excepted; if you have plates or a placard, you can park in the lot), but park on the street.  There is parking on Shady Avenue.  The main entrance is on Shady.  You must register with the reception desk.  We meet in Room 220, which can be difficult to find if you've not been there before, so it is best to arrive early so the intrepid, experienced members who already know the way can lead you.  Bringing breadcrumbs is optional, but be aware that they clean and polish the floors in the evenings, and this is even more effective than birds for removing trails of breadcrumbs.  If you arrive late for your first meeting, ask the receptionist for directions.  Also be aware that anyone found wandering the halls muttering "220, 220..." after 9pm will be swept out with the trash.

    i will meet with you folks on Monday and thank you for the invitation to sit in on a group. i am a east end native and consequently felt this group would be a good fit for me although i'm now in the hinterlands of westmoreland county. i look forward to seeing you folks on monday and discovering whether your group is appropriate for me.

    We meet every Monday at 6pm. Our main purpose is to guide writers and aspiring writers of fiction and non fiction to publish. We do this by critiquing each members submission to the group. We require every member of the group to take part in the critiqueing. This is a must. We are an honest, easy going group and ask that you just sit in on a session to see if you feel comfortable with us and what we do. Read Joe Newcomer's note above. We are in Squirrel Hill. Once in Squirrel Hill head for Shadyside on Shady Ave. Were about two or three blocks from the corner of Shady and Forbes on Shady Ave.

    how often do you meet? am i welcome even if, at this point, my project is still nascent? I need to develop motivation and discipline; however, I'm still in very beginning stages of my work.
