    I came to the Shops at Liberty Place around 2:30pm and could not find anyone. I went up to the Rotunda second floor where I was told the meetup would be held. Where does the meetup meet? I was excited to come and attend.

      Steve- I think a sign as one comes up the escalator or to the entrance of the food court would be very helpful. You don't see the sign on the rope unless you walk that far. I was confused my first time too.

      That is a good idea. I will create something and figure out a location. Thanks for insight. Glad that you could make it to the meetup.

  • Steve

    This was possibly the largest group ever. 54 people with 18 newbies. We had a good discussion about copyrights, 4 critiques and 12 for dinner after.

    Great meetup!! I really enjoyed meeting all of you and I hate that we had to leave after the first part. I will be at the next meetup and look forward to seeing all of you again.

    A few people chatted with me after the meeting about copyright related matters and I wasn't sure if anyone had any questions after our chat. If you need add'l info about copyright related questions, feel free to reach out to me. I'm working on a non-fiction novel and I look forward to sharing a couple of chapters with the group once I have progressed a bit.

    My email is chrismoye.esq [at] gmail dot com. Again, feel free to reach out if you're still a little foggy after our craft chat or you need to get pointed in the right direction. Copyright filings aren't so hard once you get the hang of it!

    Great meeting. I was pleasantly surprised at the organization and professionalism of the group. The craft chat portion of the meeting was the most informative and I left with more information than I had intended to receive. I'm very happy I made it out even though I wasn't able to stay for it's entirety.

    This was my first meeting, and it was so much more than I expected! Unfortunately, I had to leave after the break to attend another meeting, but I'll be back next month.

    Good morning ladies and gents. I'm one of that horde of people that have been told I'm a capable writer throughout my life, but did nothing about it (grammar and spelling notwithstanding). Now that I'm retired, I thought I'd pull it out of my "bucket" and see what comes of it. Is this group limited to non-fiction? Do I need to have a work in progress to attend? If so, do attendees send it out to members ahead of time and expect criticism during the meeting? Any and all information would be appreciated before I show up for my first Group Meetup.
    Thanks,
    Tom

      Non-fiction is accepted. I am pretty sure this group is open to almost all kinds of writing, which is great. You don't need a work in progress to attend. When you attend your first meeting, you will be asked to provide your email address. From then on, you'll receive about four submissions for critique every month through email. During the second part of the meetup, feedback on these previously read submissions is provided. Don't worry about the fact that you won't have read the pieces being critiqued in this meetup; that's expected with all new members. It's still worthwhile to see how the critiques usually go, and you can often still read a bit of what's being critiqued if another group member has printed out some copies which they've brought and is willing to share.If you have something to submit, then you just have to email Julius DeAngelus.

    Can anyone suggest a parking lot or garage near the meeting? Thanks.

    February 1, 2013

    • Eric

      Hi David- I've heard that the parking garage near the former GlaxoSmithKline headquarters, between Vine and Race and between 15th and 16th streets, has reduced parking rates on weekends. Enter the lot off of Spring Street, a small street between Race and Vine. But I'm not sure. Once parked, walk south on 16th to Liberty Place. Or google Philadelphia Parking for list of convenient spots. See you there!

    Can't make that meeting, but will try for March. Don -- er -- Sawney isn't the only debutant. My first e-book, Nightwinds, is out on smashwords for all formats.

      Congrats on the ebook release, M! The description sounds fun. I plan on checking it out soon.

    What should I bring to the meeting next week? I'm currently working on a novel and trying to create the layout and it's taking time to do so. Once the layout is in place it will be a lot easier to write the book

    • Julius D.

      Hi Joseph, if it's your first meeting then you really only need to bring a notebook and pen...we'll get you signed up on the email list and then we can critique your work! Thanks!

  • Crystal S.

    I'm also a newbie and so looking forward to meeting other writers (now that I dare to call myself one)!

    Hello! This is my first time joining a Philadelphia Writer's Meetup... just how many pages should we bring for the critique? Thanks =)

      It's cheap enough so I see no harm. They're not offering to sell you a compilation book of poetry with yours included, which is the usual sign of a scam.
