Let's Meetup and Write Together

  • to
  • Needs a location

  • As we discussed, I'm scheduling a meetup for us to actually write together. We'll do one or two writing prompts each meetup from Kiteley's book, 3 a.m. Epiphany, or we'll do writing sprints and share our work. We will not be critiquing active personal projects

    In the spirit of positivity, any critique of a participant's writing must take the following form:

    • Focus on technique only not preference, i.e., we will not like or dislike any participants piece. Preference isn't relevant. 

    • Each critique with begin with what worked for you and after that, you can state what didn't work for you. For example:

    Jane Doe, you did an exemplary job of incorporating all five senses into your piece. The way you described the sunset was particularly evocative. I will say, however, that the adjectives you chose for the scent in the air was a bit startling for me and threw me out of the story.

    Okay, so long story short. The choice here is... meet at Verita where they have long tables, but music playing and it's free; or;

    Each participant pays a portion of the rental fee split between whomever shows up. Right now minimum rental fee would be $30 at the library and maximum rate is $50 at Mead's coffee shop. With six RSVPs that a minimum of $5, but could become more on writing day.

    Honestly, I'm not inclined to cover a rental fee and hope for reimbursement given the no show rate on the meetup. Thoughts?

      Verita sounds like a good possibility, at least for the first one

      Yes, we went to Verita the day I went to wrong place and came late. :)

    I like City Arts. I'm kind of tired of driving on Kellogg! But I will if I have to.

      I think Shelli was the person who mentioned it. My notes say it's called Milk Float.
