The Regular Meeting
Welcome to the Shanghai Writing Workshop. We are interested in everything related to creative writing, and we hope you can join us. If you're interested in joining, you'll need to join our wechat chat group to let us know if you're lost on your way to the meeting. You can wechat me at texaswriter. You'll also need to message me so that I can add you to our trello account, which is where all of our stories are stored. There's a new short prompt available on trello that's updated before the meeting. Try and post a response a few days before meeting if you want others a chance to comment on it. Thanks to trello, you don't have to make it to the meeting to participate. Online submissions and comments are both appreciated. You also don't have to submit. Readers are always welcome, but I do find that reading before meeting greasy increases the joy of going to meeting. No experience required. We are a mixed group in terms of experience, backgrounds, and languages, but I find that we are also very supportive of each other in everything from goals to reading to publishing. In addition to the standard workshop, the Shanghai Writing Workshop hosts two writing retreats a year, puts forward a team for the three day novel writing competition, and puts together an ebook anthology of work at the end of every year. We're always doing something, and if you have any ideas, we're always up for anything literature related. Once again, if you need help getting setup, contact me on wechat, texaswriter, and I hope to see you at the workshop.

What we're about

Founded by a quirky creative writing professor two years ago, this is a group for anyone interested in writing, editing, or publishing. Every other Tuesday, we get together near Jingan Temple, share our work, talk shop, and seek advice from one another to try and develop our writing skills. We have a range of skills and nationalities, and the most important quality that we look for is a passion for writing. If you have that, then we look forward to looking at your work.
