We were thrilled at the turnout for our first few writing group meetings! We have so many genres, experience levels, and ages represented. We've had great discussions and everyone was so enthusiastic about writing and learning new things!
October agenda is:
- Joshua submission
- Chrystal submission
- plot tips/tricks discussion
- How are you doing on your writing challenge?
If you'd like to submit a writing sample for the group to discuss, email it to Molly at FHB (firstname.lastname@example.org) 8 days before the meeting. She will email out the whole packet to the whole group the day after so the group will have that whole week to read the submissions. In order to avoid millions of emails to the group, Molly is going to be strict about that submission deadline.
Submissions should be about 5 pages double spaced. If your submission comes from the middle of a larger piece, it might be good to include a paragraph of introduction to get people into the story. If your piece has explicit content, please say so at the top as some of our members might want to pass on that.
If you didn't come to the first few meetings but are interested in joining the group, you are more than welcome. Please email email@example.com and she will make sure you have the submissions that we'll discuss next.
We created a Facebook group for the members to share little things or links or whatever they'd like in between meetings. Here's the link to that: https://www.facebook.com/groups/FHBwriting/
