Hi friends, writers, aspiring writers, creatives, and fun people who like to congregate around shared interests over drinks:
I have been talking about this for a while, and now I think it’s time: I’m starting a creative writing group in Vancouver!
Who can join? Anyone who likes to write.
When and where will we meet? Every two weeks on Wednesday evenings at a local drinking establishment, preferably with big tables and not too much noise.
What will happen? At each meeting, we’ll each take turns presenting the group with a creative prompt. This could be a piece of art, a piece of writing, a word, an object–anything. Group members will then use that prompt to inspire a piece of writing. For example, I might present a prompt like this amazing new blog I found called Stories About Prince. You could then take that prompt and write your own story about Prince, a poem about Prince, or a story about purple rain. Anything! Then, at our next meeting, we can share what we wrote, or just chat about our writing projects in general.
Aside from the above general guidelines, there are no rules. Nothing is a wrong answer, and I promise I won’t be playing spelling and grammar police. It’s all about fun and creativity.
The first meeting will be held:
Wednesday, Mar. 27 at 7pm at The Morrissey Pub, 1227 Granville Street (between Davie and Drake)
Please let me know in the comments or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re coming so we can secure a big enough table.
Hope to see you there!
