Earlier this year, we wrote a serial story as a group project. Thirteen writers wrote a chapter each, with no direction as to what their chapter should be about other than progressing the story. We’ve been waiting for the final author to complete his chapter and he promises that we will have it by the next Writers Group meeting, and he says that he has crafted a satisfying end to the story. Once I have his piece, I will either send the entire story out to all of you to read and enjoy, or I will post it on our blog and send you all the link.
Since we had so much fun writing the story, we discussed at the June meeting that we should do another group project. This time, it was suggested that everyone to write a short story based on the theme of “the news and its impact.” We also decided that we would target the August meeting for everyone to have their contribution ready. I don’t want to discourage you from submitting something else you would like us to critique, but I think the majority of the stories will be from the group project.
The next THC Writers Group meeting will be Saturday, August 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 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 13th for the Writers Group, and on the 27th for the August Reading Series night, when Matt Bieniek, the coordinator of this group, will be the featured reader.
