Our October Meeting: Open Mic Morning


Please join us Saturday, October 14th from 10-12 noon for our October meeting. We'll be in the Morrison Room upstairs at Savannah Coffee Roasters.

This time we'll be having an "open mic" session—bring some of your work-in-progress (or finished work-—we're not picky!) to read aloud for the others. This is not a critique session; instead, it's a chance for us to get to know each other through what we write. We'll also have updates on our November event with Nancy Pickard.

After the meeting, we'll be eating lunch at Savannah Coffee Roasters for those interested in hanging out and talking further.
