Spring is almost here, as is the June Tamale Hut Café Writers meeting. I hope you plan to do some summer writing along with your summer reading.
A quick announcements: as you can see in the previous post, submissions are open for the Tamale Hut Café 2015 Short Story Contest! Details can be found at http://thcstorycontest.blogspot.com/. They’re accepting stories until July 10, 2015, so if you want to have us (the Writers Group) look at your story before you submit it, you need to get it in for the June meeting. And remember, we have nothing at all to do with running the contest, so just because we like your story doesn’t mean the judges will like it.
The next THC Writers Group meeting will be Saturday, June 13th, at the Tamale Hut Café, starting at 2PM. If you can attend, we’d love to see you there. If you would like to submit a piece for critique during the meeting, please reply to this message and attach it, along with an idea of the level of feedback you are looking for, and I will distribute it to the group. If you have something you would like feedback on but you can’t attend the meeting, I’d be glad to forward it to the group as well. We can discuss it at the meeting and get some comments back to you via e-mail.
Hope to see you all on the 13th for the Writing Group. And please mark your calendar for the 20th for the next Reading Series night, where the featured reader will be our own Alexei Collier. I’m told that the theme of the evening will be haiku. If details are not on their blog at https://thcreadingseries.wordpress.com/, they will be soon. It should be a great night.
