Here is an update for next Friday:
Alison Bailey will present on May 16th. She will present on two or three areas the group struggles with most…Endings/Middles and Settings. And she said have participants ”bring in a chunk of his or her main project to revise independently after I talk. I’m thinking I’ll talk from 45 minutes to an hour, individual revision would then be 30-45 minutes, and I would invite anyone willing to share their “before” and “after” in the last 30 minutes. I would of course participate with a passage of my own! I would encourage everyone to bring a passage they’re less confident in, (particularly one that pertains to the subjects she addresses in the first part). Anywhere from 5-15 pages. You could also choose to bring a piece you are just getting off the ground, and perhaps use the lecture and the revision time as a little “boost”.
This is going to be our last meeting until the potluck in June. Liz Kellebrew, our previous president sent Alison our way and the meeting will surely be interesting and informative. Don’t miss it! It will be a good opportunity to work out the details for a submission to our anthology that Amy Flugel is currently working on pulling together.
