The meetings are half talking about the book and half catching up with each other. New people are always welcome! Members select books as a group at each meeting. We want your book suggestions.

Mission: Ideally, we’d like 6-8 regular attendees to monthly contribute 8-12 pages (double-space, 12 pt font) of commercial fiction*. Format: workshopping. Intention: Everybody ‘gets time’. Motto: Always honest, but never mean. 6-8 regular attendees. Regular implies some level of commitment and allows for remembering each other’s plot lines, characters, revisions, etc. We’re trying to create a writing lab, a safe haven from the writing jungle: a ‘place’ to nurture experimentation + take chances …
