OUR NEXT MEETING:
January 7, 2019
6:30 to 8:30 pm
Carol Stream Library
616 Hiawatha Drive
Carol Stream, Illinois
If you would like to attend our meetings we encourage you to participate by bringing in ten typewritten copies of a one to three page excerpt of your current work. You will then be asked read aloud your writing to our group. The rest of us will write critiques that include encouragements, comments, and suggestions on those copies. We then share our thoughts about what you had written. I myself find it helpful to hear and later refer to what other people have thought about something I am working on. I find it a way I can grow with my writing.
