This week’s meeting was our first workshop session. There wasn’t enough time to cover all the stories in an hour, so we’ll be extending the workshop to next week to fit in the last couple stories.
The love story challenge proved pretty versatile; the stories were varied in tone and each one seemed to take the theme in an entirely different direction from the last. It was wonderful to have a chance to bring so many different writing voices together for each piece. We did a bit of brainstorming with the writer of each story discussed, and the writers had plenty of great notes to take home and mull over. Hopefully we’ll see some revised stories from this workshop later on.
On Monday (March 4 at 5pm) we’ll wrap up our workshop and take the rest of the meeting to discuss what the group would like to focus on next.
