First, a reminder that the Writers Group meeting this month will not be on the second Saturday but will be on the third Saturday, June 18, so that some of us can attend the annual Printers Row Lit Fest in downtown Chicago. Matt B will be under the IWPA Author’s tent, which will be on the south end of the event, near Polk Street. If you’re going to the Lit Fest, please stop by and say “Hello”.
At the last meeting, we discussed what we’d like to do next as a group project, and the consensus was that we should come up with a theme and have everyone write to that theme, similar to what the LaGrange Library Writers Group did with their recent collection The Wrong Coat. If you have any ideas on a theme, please bring them up at the next meeting. If you have an idea but can’t make the meeting on the 18th, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll mention it during the course of the conversation.
The next THC Writers Group meeting will be Saturday, June 18th, 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 send it to email@example.com, 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 18th for the Writers Group, and on the 25th for the June Reading Series night, with featured reader Carlos Cumpian.
