Here is what’s coming up:
Short Works Group:
Our bi-weekly short works group will be meeting Oct. 2, at 1pm at the Gravity Connect Center. This week’s stories are “Horse Deal” by Peg Cadigan and “The Village with the Hole in the Sky” by J Boone Dryden. Visit our Submissions Page to see the reading list.
This week is packed with novel changes. (Get it? ). We will have our last weekday meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 7pm at the Wauwatosa Public Library. We’ll be finishing up Tom Murphy’s piece “The Memoir of Mortimer Bibblemaker.” If you don’t have the story, please email me.
After that we’ll be meeting regularly on Sunday’s directly after the short works group, with our first meeting on Oct. 2 at 3pm. For our first meeting, we’ll be getting an idea of who has material, working on a reading list, and building our schedule for the next few months. Please attend if you’ve got something you’d like to have worked on.
Our first meeting of the Fall will be this upcoming Thursday, Sept. 29 at 6:30pm at the USS Lincoln Memorial Library (in Grafton). Please join us for a workshop on plotting, as well as some ideas for the future direction of the group in terms of reading material, workshops, and a possible new location for alternate Thursdays. Feel free to bring a sample of writing or maybe an excerpt from a favorite author.
The new UWM group is off to a good start. With support from Furrow, UWM’s undergraduate literary publication, this new group is focused on writers on the UWM campus and others in the area of the East Side. If you’ve got a Friday evening free, come join us Oct. 7 at 7pm in the UWM Student Union. We’ll be reading a poem by one our newest member and a short story by Furrow’s own, Kori Klinzig.
Need motivation? Come join J Boone Dryden at the Shorewood Alterra Coffee at 7pm on Tuesday’s. This week’s will be cancelled in light of the Novel Group, but we’ll be meeting regularly after that each Tuesday. Just look for the wonderful hand-drawn sign.
Keep an eye on our Schedule of Classes, as we’ll be announcing a Grammar & Usage course, as well as some afternoon workshops on things like Self-editing, Queries, and Genre.
