What we're about

If you write and need a place to read your work - this is the Meetup for you. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month in a casual open-mike format. We welcome fiction, essay, memoir, non-fiction, poetry, screenplays and essays. Each reader will have 5 minutes to read. Average reading pace is 200 words a minute, so if you want to read, bring 1000 words and read them in front of a friendly non-threatening audience of fellow writers. This is NOT a critique group. If you'd like to answer questions after your reading, bring fewer words, and use some of your 5 minutes for feedback. I find that readers are happy to answer questions after the Meetup too, because it's a great way to connect. If you're not ready to read, come to listen.

If you plan to read, sign up to attend as soon as you can. I'll be scheduling people according to when they RSVP, and the first 12 or 13 people will get their chance. If you're late to register, bring something anyway - there may be no-shows...

We're looking forward to meeting you

Read your work in a casual open-mic Zoom format

Fairfield

Bring five minutes'-worth of your writing to share (please read it aloud first, so you know how long it takes!) and listen to your fellow writers read theirs. Although this isn't listed as an online event - it is. If you'd like to attend DM (direct message) me for the link if you don't already have it. (I'm doing this to prevent Zoom-bombers...) This way, we shouldn't have the problem we had last month when the link didn't appear at all. Thanks.
