Last Writers’ Circle meeting of the spring 2017 term this Thursday! (4/6)

The Writers’ Forum at Clarkston campus would like to invite you to attend their last meeting of the spring 2017 term this Thursday, April 6th, from 2:30 – 4 p.m. in JCLRC building, room 4100, (the room is located on the top floor of the library at the end of the hall, in The Chattahoochee Review office suite).

Writers’ Forum is a monthly free writing and critique group for you to receive feedback on your writing in progress at whatever stage it’s in. The definition of writing is generous for this group: poems, short stories, plays, screenplays, essays, letters.  Please bring copies to share with the group so that we can see your work on the page; usually, 8 to 10 copies is sufficient.  If you have a longer piece of writing, we ask that you bring no more than 5 pages.  You may prefer to just attend and listen; that’s fine, too.  Also, feel free to arrive late or leave early as your schedule requires.

All meetings are open to the larger community, and no fee is required.  If you have questions, please contact the co-advisor, Michael Diebert, at 678-891-3987.
