Columbus House of Scribes Monthly Meetup
Please note the location for this month's Meetup.
THE PROMPT: Ah, spring.
DISCUSSION: I Don't Believe It! Cultivating the Suspension of Disbelief in Your Readers
The prompt: Each month, we make available a voluntary prompt by the week before the meetup. Members may choose to write a short piece, fiction or nonfiction, poetry, prose, or script, as long as it conforms to the rules of the prompt.
Prompt Rules : 800 words max.
Prize: One randomly-drawn prompt response will win a $5 Half Price Books gift card. The winner must be present to claim the prize.
The discussion: Each month, we have one or more discussion topics related to the art and/or business of writing. We also provide recommended reading, which are topical links to use as a starting point. If you have a topic you would like to cover, let us know!
Writing challenge: Every so often, we will host a challenge, where we provide one or more prompts, give members a set time to write, then give anyone who feels comfortable sharing what they wrote the opportunity to do so.
Critiques: Members can bring copies of a written piece up to 5,000 words to a meetup and distribute it to be critiqued at a subsequent meetup. Alternately, submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, where they will be placed into a Google Drive accessible to volunteers for critique.
Masks are no longer required to enter our buildings.
