Writers Meetup

Monthly Writers Meetup!

This informal meetup is for anyone working on writing that has anything to do with photography—whether their own images or others'. There are endless possibilities for the ways that words and images can function around, beside, through, and about one another. We write for many reasons and for many audiences. What are you working on these days? Is there something you'd like to get started? Interested in participating in some feedback?

This is an open writing group. Come by monthly, or just once. Bring a piece of writing in progress for group feedback, and get some inspiration from the Silver Eye library.

The workshop will run in an open critique format, with participants attending when they choose. Each participant should bring a selection of their in-process writing to discuss. Advance registrants and regular participants will be invited to circulate drafts in advance for feedback, but it will also be fine to just bring in what they happen to be working on at the time.

Register here!
