First, two quick notes:
– starting today and running until May 11 is the Evanston Literary Festival, with lots of events, especially this weekend. For more details and the schedule of events, see the festival web site: https://www.evanstonlit.org/
– at our next meeting, we will be discussing plans for our Featured Reader spot at the October THC Reading Series night. What seemed like the most popular suggestion from last month was for everyone to start with the same sentence, then write whatever story the sentence inspires in them. Since October will be here before we know it, we need to decide if this is what we want to do, and to decide on an opening sentence. Think about it and bring your ideas to the May meeting.
The next THC Writers Group meeting will be Saturday, May 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.
I hope to see you all on the 13th for the Writers Group, and on the 20th for the May Reading Series night.
