Yes, First Friday on Oct. 1 -- At last!!!!!

We will have First Friday this coming Friday. We usually have no more that 20 at the meetings, often more like 15. If you're bringing poems, try to bring copies for us. If you're bringing prose and it's more than a couple of pages, don't bother to make copies, just come and read to us. Remember that, prose or poetry, we try to hold the time to 10 minutes per person, give or take -- mostly give, but prose writers sometimes have to choose between reading the whole thing and then getting no comments or reading for a few minutes so there's enough time in ten minutes to have the group give a good discussion and feedback.

The meeting starts at 6:30. If the group is fairly big, we're pretty strict on the time per person. If the group is little, we completely lose control of the time and the meeting usually goes just as long as if there was a big group. Because that's how we roll! See you soon.
