membership, meetings, participation

Last week, we had our first meeting and figured out a few things:

1) The Downtown Writers Group will meet once a month, on the first Thursday of the month at 7pm.

2) Meetings will be at the DLANC Outreach Center, but we are open to alternate venues with food/beverage service within walking distance if you have suggestions.

3) To participate in the review process, members must submit their own pages for review.

4) No more than fifteen writers in each category/genre (i.e., screenwriters, novelists, playwrights, poets, etc.)

Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 4, 2007 at 7pm at the DLANC Outreach Center on Main Street (by the Regent Theater). As it stands now, there will be two screenplays and a few short stories to review, but I'm hoping there will be other submissions.

Pages submitted for review must be distributed at least two week prior to the next scheduled meeting, so that members have adequate time to read submitted material. We will meet briefly on September 20th at 7pm to "hand-off" copies of your material to participating members at the DLANC Outreach Center.

Please take a moment to introduce yourself to the rest of the group by leaving a comment below.
