5:00-5:15: Requisite fifteen minute schmoozing.
5:15-6:15: We write for an hour, a la the "Shut Up & Write" meetups.
6:15-6:25: Replenish mind and body after intense and gratifying writing session via the ordering of food and drink.
6:25-8:00: We critique, in a a supportive way, two pieces from group members. The two pieces will have been designated the previous week. These files are available through astoriawg.blogspot.com.
8:00: Sad farewells, until next week.
We look forward to seeing you at the Sunday AWG Meetup. Any questions, please feel free to contact us through this site.
PLEASE NOTE: You must attend at least one meetup before submitting a piece for review.
This should go without saying, but we do expect you to not harass anyone at Panera Bread during the meetup. We have had it happen where people have done just that and we were forced to ask them to leave the group.
PLEASE NOTE AGAIN: It's probably a good idea to bring headphones and a music player, as it's unpredictable what sort of background noise is going to be going on during the writing session.
All files to be critiqued on Sunday are available from the Blogspot links, which will be posted from the comments.
