Tired of trying to be fabulous on a Tuesday night in South Beach?
How about something obtuse and not glamorous?
The Miami Writers, a group of emerging poets, novelists, screenwriters, bloggers and politicians (ha ha, just checking to see if youâ€™re paying attention), are hosting an interactive writing and critique session at The Wallflower Gallery in downtown Miami on Tuesday, March 16 starting at 7pm.
What do you get out of this, exactly? Everyoneâ€™s got somethinâ€™ to dish, and it all starts with writing a few words on paper. But then what? So often, the journals and electronic files go nowhere, and your dreams of becoming a writer never manifest.
Put an end to the procrastination while discovering a fun way to share and get feedback within a safe environment of like-minded people. Having an audience that wants to support you rather than heckle you off the stage is the first step to taking your creativity from just an idea to reality.
The way it works: This is a workshop for beginners. We will start with a warm-up of on-the-spot writing by giving you prompts. Then, in the second half of the workshop, you can share what you wrote and/or just give feedback to others. You may also bring writing from home â€“ we especially like second or third drafts of work (since the first draft is often just a journal entry).
About the Miami Writers
In 2006, Alejandra Fernandez, Melanie Feliciano, Claudia Forestieri, Tennille Martinez and Ruben Soto got together at Azucar para el espiritu, a small spiritual bookstore located on Calle 8 to talk about their dreams as aspiring writers. They pooled all their skills and creative energy to organize Write-Ins, Critique Sessions, Spoken Word & Literary Reading Nights, the Write Out Loud Tent at Miami Book Fair International, Author Panels on publishing, a writers retreat at The Standard Hotel and a literary exhibition at Art Basel 2009. Since then, Angello Pizarro became the â€œcommunications ninjaâ€ for the group, managing 400+ Facebook members, and Jose Javier Rodriguez serves as the groupâ€™s soul searcher.
