MOTIVATING WRITERS

If you’ve just finished a story and you need some feedback or if you’ve been wanting to come to meetings forever and are just curious to see what your fellow writers are up to, The Writers Group is for you.

Each member will share their work in a friendly, low-stakes environment where everyone understands the hurdles of writing. As a reader, you’ll get an immediate response to your work and be able to ask focused questions of the group.

In the group, you’ll get to see what your fellow writers have been up to and improve your own writing by analyzing others’ work.

More than that, it’s an opportunity to get to know your fellow writers better!

Writers will be scheduled primarily on a first-come, first-served basis to read their pieces. Please keep pieces under 10 minutes to give everyone a chance to read.

    Brett ..I have finished up on a very moving story as the character goes through hell and back ... I was told by someone in the literary industry that it would make a good film... so in that I am keeping my fingers crossed that the character is appealing enough to a publisher to be then made into a film! The person used as a beta reader does not represent the story line of the manuscript so she passed on it... so soon I will be sending queries out to other agents again to hopefully be noticed and published and then 'who knows?' Can't wait to meet the group!

    Hello I planned to attend tomorrow but now , I am taking my mother to a couple Assisted Living facilities in Canton/ N.Canton area and 1 Indepenent Living facility so we can determine where she wishes to go. I will hope to attend the next Meet Up for Motivating Writers as I get ideas and can start a story, can have good ending for story but have issues with getting enough in the body of a story to make it say 125 pgs long. Have a Good Session.

      Good luck with your mom. In terms of stories, write until the character has overcome the conflict you've developed. If it's too short, throw a new, bigger conflict at your character. Keep throwing things at your character until it's the length you want.

    Thank you Brett . I was really looking forward to meeting everyone. Hoping January I will be there. I am a poet and also have written several short stories . Working on getting the short story published. I had an experienced with a ''phony'' literary agent that absorbed a year of my time and hope , so starting all over. Take care, stay safe.

    I'm coming, but quickly I'm going. I have to be in Cleveland before noon, so I'll say hi and pick up the disk to review.
