Readings and introductions.
The 5th anthology has been suspended, to be released in 2018. Submissions will be open until the end of 2017; those who have already submitted something they’re happy with can keep their piece under consideration, and these pieces will be read and evaluated first. We discussed the idea of running a workshop for those who might need some help polishing something up for submission.
The anatomy of a scene/story.
We’ve talked about this topic a bit before, but in this meeting we looked at a specific structure and talked about how we felt about highly granular planning.
Prompt. Write for 10 minutes on the theme: “I suck at _______”
Polish up this writing exercise and bring it back next month to read aloud.
OR, try using the scene or story structure we discussed and report back.
