We also strive to promote contemporary creative writing by offering readings by professional, published writers, by publishing the PVCC Literary Magazine, and by offering opportunities for the PVCC community to write and read creative work.Staff Advisor: Jennifer Koster, [email protected] Contact(s): Marissa Hall: [email protected] Wyatt Ernst: [email protected] The PVCC Literary Magazine, The Fall Line, is now accepting submissions for our Spring 2018 edition.
The following ideas might help you respond to work that has been distributed beforehand: Some groups prefer to bring writing, particularly shorter pieces, to the group meeting for immediate discussion.
You might bring a draft of an entire paper, a section of a paper, or just a sentence or two that you can’t seem to get “just right.” Many of the above ideas will work just as well for writing that has been presented during the meeting of the writing group.
We also run One day Workshops and Weekend Retreats designed to help you dive deep into your work.
Your experienced facilitator Alison Powell is a widely published, award winning writer who will devise a range of innovative activities and exercises to stimulate your imagination and get creative juices flowing.
Spread the Word is a writing development agency looking to take new and emerging writers under their wing with the intention of building their careers.
For those looking for a casual writing community, this perhaps isn’t for you, but for those looking to build a career and survive as a writer, it’s almost impossible to do so without the support of this community.
You might distribute your writing at one meeting for discussion at the next; leave writing in people’s mailboxes; drop writing off at people’s carrels or offices; or send writing via e-mail, either by pasting material into an e-mail message or by including it as an attachment.
Readers can offer the most helpful feedback when the writer has provided a list of questions, trouble spots, or issues for them to consider in their responses.
However, since writing presented during the meeting will be new to everyone except the author, you might try these additional strategies: Sometimes, especially with new writing or writers needing a boost of confidence, it can be helpful to share writing without anticipating feedback.
This kind of sharing can help writers get over fears about distributing their work or being judged: This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivs 4.0 License.
