As predicted, October was a busy month, and November is shaping up to be just as action-packed! Here’s a few things you should know about:
– as discussed last month, I have set up a Goodreads group for us to share our written book reviews. You can join by going to this link. (I assume that it will prompt you to create a Goodreads account if you don’t already have one.) I’ve initially set it up as a private group, at least until we figure out how it works, and I’ll approve everyone who joins as fast as possible.
– The Chicago Book Expo this year is on Sunday, Nov. 13 at Columbia College downtown. Sean, Marianne, Steve, and maybe Beth have expressed interest in joining me there behind the table to promote our group and all things Tamale Hut. Everyone is encouraged to stop by and say Hi.
– The Reading Series night this month is on Nov. 19 will feature the winners of the THC Short Story contest from earlier this year.
– Sean had asked for early feedback on his submission for the next meeting. If you’ve had a chance to read it, please send your comments to email@example.com and I’ll pass them along.
The next THC Writers Group meeting will be Saturday, November 12th, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 12th for the Writers Group, and on the 19th for the November Reading Series night.
