Caffeinate & Critique 2

Alaska Coffee Roasting Company roasts their own coffee and handcrafts pizza in a wood fire oven. They have great teas and vegan friendly options. This place seems larger than its square footage, with a fresh new store feel but with a definite character of its own. Portraits of grizzlies and eagles own the walls, but the staff is friendly and responsive. It's a great place to write the bestseller that's hiding within you."

1. Bring a piece of original creative writing to workshop (we'll do critiques in small groups of 3-4, as usual).
2. OPTIONAL: If you want to stay and write afterwards, also bring a writing project you want to work on at Alaska Coffee (it may be the same as the one above) and anything you need to work on it (a laptop, a notepad, pencils, etc.). We're going to use the group energy to fuel our own independent writing. For those of you who have been to our Write Ins, this will be similar in that we'll all be writing together, but different in that you're supplying your own prompt/project. WARNING: These tend to turn into chat sessions, which no one seems to mind :)

3. If you're a new member, bring the annual $10 dues.

    Enjoyed meeting the others at the meetup and hearing their writing. Thanks for the suggestions. I came right home and started revising the beginning of my "piece." I think what I'm doing now will tighten it and make it more interesting. Ann

      Hi Ann, I would love to read your piece. It was well constructed and I like memoir style writing. If you feel comfortable sharing it electronically, I would love to provide better feedback on the whole piece. -- Welcome...kris

      Hi Kris. I'd be glad to have you read my "piece." I guess I need your email address to email it to hyou.

      Mahogany, you have been writing a lot lately, I think. Your piece had a lot of substance and was well done with some difficult topics. That is going to be one messed up kid, but thankfully only fictional (watch out S. King!
