General meeting and office hours
A host may not always be able to make it, this doesn't mean a meeting can't happen. The best communities can self-organise, so here are ideas to discuss:
What have you been working on recently?
What did you learn from that activity?
What challenges have you faced recently?
What do you need help with?
What are you looking for?
Anything good you've read recently? What did you like about it and learn from it?
For the benefit of other Factory members, the sessions also provide a place where they can get some advice on their writing, in any language attendees feel qualified to help in. So ask attendees if they need help. Please appreciate that many of us make a living out of providing our expertise, this is more about passing on advice than 'doing a job for free'.
Creative Writing Sessions
The aim of these meet-ups is to get words on the page. It does not matter if you are a seasoned writer, or just exploring ‘writing’ for the first time. There are prompts provided so do not feel that you have to prepare something before coming. Just Show Up! We normally meet for around an hour, there are opportunities to share your writing. But also no pressure!
We normally break up the writing into 5 & 10 minute intervals, but also we are experimenting and want to keep things fluid and relaxed!
Open to suggestions & feedback =)
If the weather is nice we sit outside! But check the #-writers-circle to stay up-to-date!
