This post is going to be e-mailed to all of the Gettysburg Writers Brigade members, but it’s certainly open for anyone to chime in.
I started this blog to help get the word out about our great group. [For those of you who are reading and aren’t members, we meet Wednesdays 7 p.m. on the second floor of O’Rorke’s Restaurant in Gettysburg to “Talk about writerly things” as the meeting reminder e-mail always states.] Some of us even eat (I love their pretzel sticks) or partake in an adult beverage or two (It will take the edge off on reading night).
I’ve had a mix of posts … quotes, articles, video, posts based on meetings, posts based on articles I’ve read, etc. What I haven’t gotten yet is a lot of other voices. This is a blog that encourages guests posts.
- What are your feelings about writing?
- Have a question you want answered?
- Want feedback on a short piece? [BTW, our group stresses positive critiques not harsh ones.]
- Want to let our members know about a writing or book event?
Also, if you have a website, you can list it on our Members Website page.
Most of the members in the group are indie authors or unpublished writers. We know how hard it is to get published and get noticed. That’s why we try to help each other. We celebrate in each other successes as we fellowship at the weekly meetings. You not only learn something new, but we have a lot of fun doing it.
For non-member readers, if you’re interested in coming to one of our meetings, O’Rorke’s is at 44 Steinwehr Ave. in Gettysburg. We don’t take attendance or expect you to be at every meeting (although we’d love to see you).
You can be notified of upcoming meetings and topics by signing up for the group on Meetup.com. Just type in “Gettysburg Writers Brigade” to join the group.
Hope to see you soon!
