Happy New Year, everyone! The group had some successes last year, most notably the project we presented at the October Reading Series night, but I think the general consensus is that 2016 was not the best of years. I’m determined to make 2017 better in every possible way, starting with my writing projects. Who’s with me? Let’s do it!
The next THC Writers Group meeting will be Saturday, January 14th, 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.
One thing on the agenda for the meeting is time-sensitive, so I thought I’d include it here as advanced notice. Steve sent in a link to the inaugural Chicago Writers Association Literary Bus Tour, scheduled for January 28th. The e-mail he forwarded said:
“On January 28th we’ll be rolling out (pun intended) the inaugural CWA Literary Bus Tour. This first event will explore Chicago’s North Side, including some iconic stops. SEATS ARE LIMITED and it is on a first come, first served basis. We hope you’ll join us!”
If anyone is interested, you can get more information at this link.
Hope to see you all on the 14th for the Writers Group, and later that day for the January Reading Series night.
