Write-out & Workshop: Plan on writing for an hour. After a short break, writers can take turns reading what they have written or read five pages of a work-in-progress. Bringing a manuscript is not required. New writers may feel more comfortable reading after they get to know the group.
How to prepare your manuscript for Write-out & Workshop Group:
–Double-space, Times New Roman, 12-14 points.
–Select five pages of your work to read.
–Bring six to eight copies for others to follow along and make comments.
–Using blank sides of old manuscripts is fine.
–Your copies will be returned to you that evening.
If Douglas County School District or DCHS is closed due to weather, the meeting is cancelled. If the library is closed, the meeting is cancelled. For more information, contact CRW at 303-521-8615.
