Hello Everyone!

Welcome to our little group.  We typically meet on every Thursday evening, though we have had meetings on other nights.  Our usual venue is Starbucks (second floor of Chapters, downtown) but we also use the Atrium (next to the Habit coffee shop, downtown) sometimes.

The first Thursday of each month is reserved for a Meet N Greet.  Here we discuss group business and then play some word games to stretch our writing muscles.

The third Thursday of each month is a critique night.  Here we break into subgroups to give feedback and encouragement on our respective writing projects.  When we can we typically schedule a general ‘hanging out’ session on the same night for those not currently in a critique subgroup.

On all the other Thursdays we have a theme night, picked in advance from a list of topics people want to cover … topics include: dealing with writer’s block, how to write an erotic scene, dialogue, issues over POV, traditional verses self publishing, and many others.  We have even had presentations by local self-publishing services, sharing their experiences of the book industry, editors’ expectations, etc.

Hopefully we'll see you around.

From Peter T and The Management


Note:

Please don't spam.  If you have anything from outside of this group (information about writing competitions, services, etc) that you'd like to share, feel free to send it to me and I'll pass it along.

We encourage the formation of subgroups ... but please come to one of our Meet n Greet sessions first.  We'd like to know who you are, and we'd like you to know who we are.

    "We have a 'full house'­ again, so if anyone can't make it, please remember to cancel your RSVP as this will open a space for someone on the waitlist. Thank you."
