We’re meeting!

It’s been a year and a half, but we’re finally meeting again. Most of the time will be devoted to reading and critiquing each-other’s work in small groups, but we’ll kick it off with two 5-minute lightning talks:

  • How to intensify the effect of actions during dialog — Cory Skerry
  • How to identify and replace cliché elements from your stories — Peter Rust

It’s good to have a variety of talks and presenters, so please let me know if you would be willing to present something (at this meeting or one in the future).

Time to pick up that draft or that cool story idea you’ve been thinking about and get it ready to share!

We have just two and a half weeks to let people know about the meeting. You are encouraged to bring a friend who is interested in writing and also to post our flyer (Flyer-Jan-30-2012.pdf) in your favorite library, coffee shop, market, school/college, etc. I’ll post flyers at the Bellingham Public Library, the Barkley Starbucks and the Barkley Library. You can also let people know about the group by saying that you are “Attending” on the Facebook event.

We will be meeting at Bellingham Public Library on Monday night, 6:30-8:30. Since it will be after-hours, you’ll need to come to the downstairs entrance (in the back, by the fountain and the Children’s section). If no one is at the door, please knock so we know to let you in.
