Sign Up to Read Your Work Aloud

League of Extraordinary Young Writers

A Note on the Power of Words

"Words--so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them."

~Nathaniel Hawthorne  

Young Writers Meetings on Wednesdays

All meetings open with a group discussion around the experience club members had writing on the previous week's theme. Then we open the floor to members who have signed up to read work aloud to the group. Readings are followed by verbal constructive feedback if the reader would like to hear feedback. And finally, we conclude by brainstorming a theme for next week's club meeting.

Reading Aloud

If you would like to read your work aloud in an upcoming meeting, please locate the date of the meeting on the date list below on the left and reserve a time slot during the meeting to read. In order to make sure that everyone who wants to read gets a chance to read, please do not sign up to read for 2 meetings in a row.

Note: Reading aloud is NOT mandatory. If you just want to attend and listen or participate in the feedback, feel free. All are welcome.

Please keep feedback and participation constructive!!!!!
