A Very Important Meeting
Find us at http://averyimportantmeeting.com - We started A Very Important Meeting as a daily writer's retreat, an online space to strengthen your focus with mindfulness meditation and prioritize your writing among like-minded creatives. Concentration, productivity, and community: the essential building blocks of a thriving writer’s life, right there on your calendar. Sessions are appropriate for beginning meditators as well as those with an established practice, novice writers as well as published authors.
For friends working on short stories than veer into the fantastic and grotesque. Queer-focused.
CAYA stands for Come As You Are, a private critique group formed at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to stay connected, share writing, and offer support during sheltering in place without judgement or pressure, pajamas optional. We show up for each other biweekly to check-in, share writing, and offer feedback and support.
This writing group will focus on whatever the members need at the time. If we all feel umotivated to do our WIP we can do writing prompts or flash fiction. The point of this group is to schedule time to focus on creativity and writing. There is no long term goal or project needed.
Time can be spent on editing, writing, discussing, or anything.
Let's imagine an online writing group that shares honest critique and fierce support. We're intrigued by fiction that is formally experimental and technically ambitious. We seek companions for wide discussion and close reading. We have things to say--about gender, race, disability, and more--and we envision a literature and a community where we'll be heard.
Good Grief Writers Group
We are writers who believe there is only one kind of grief, good grief.
Lost For Words
While I am most comfortable with poetry, as that is mostly what I write currently, this group is open to any genre of creative writing as means to help others and diversify my own creations. It can't be helped that I created the group for lack of other poetry groups with space. With that in mind, I would like this group to be a partnership of all members creating topics and interests together. We can start with prompts for meetings, or issues, or what have you. Please contact me if you have any more questions.
I'm interested in starting a group for those of us managing to make writing a priority alongside our hectic lives--jobs, children, partners, households, all the daily things that provide the excuses not to exercise our creative muscles. I'm looking for fellow writers to bounce ideas off of, do some workshopping with, read with, and share tips with on how we all manage our schedules!
