Advice on forming a writer's group
a flyer that describes your ideal colleagues and what you want to work
on, plus gives a contact number, and pin it up on the multitude of
bulletin boards and kiosks at the University-- and in libraries. Also
post the call on Craig's List. You'll have an abundance of applicants
from which to pick the most compatible.
We just formed a group via a PS paragraph in the suburb's weekly.
This is in addition to the Oldest Established large group I've been in
for 30 years, that only critiques actor-read completed pieces and has
a long waiting list for its public readings/feedback. The informal
new group is small enough to respond to ideas and fragments as they
emerge, and can save months of work on an unpromising direction.
