The Marshall Public Library will reopen on Monday with several new restrictions for public and staff safety. Unfortunately the Public Meeting Room will be closed for the foreseeable future.

As such, we must continue to restrict Pocatello Writer meetings to online contacts and lessons. Please join our Facebook group forum at https://facebook.com/groups/pocatellowriters/ to keep in touch. Stay safe, and keep writing.

Pocatello Writers meetings are postponed indefinitely due to a need for caution and the Library’s closure.

Charity is investigating ways to meet online, via Skype or some other method, and will keep us posted about April.

So if you can, stay home for 2 weeks and do your part to help break the chain of transmission and hope we can flatten that curve soon. Take care and get some writing done.

In the meantime, keep in touch via our Facebook forum at https://www.facebook.com/groups/pocatellowriters/.

If you need constructive feedback on your work in progress, reserve a spot to read by replying to the email by noon Friday. If you are planning to attend and not read, also please respond so readers will know how many copies to make.

Maximum reading is 10 pages double spaced. You may need to make about 5 copies to hand out for people to follow along, but we’ll let you know by Friday if you need to make more. Listeners will write helpful notes and their own names on the handouts before returning them to you.

If you are looking for a specific type of feedback or help in a certain area, let us know what to listen for as you read your piece aloud to the group. After your reading, critiquing begins with the person on your left, then continues clockwise around the table giving each person a chance to speak.

If you need constructive feedback to start off the new year, please join Russell Pike, our critique facilitator, at January’s first-Saturday meeting.

After your reading, critiquing begins with the person on your left, then continues clockwise around the table giving each person a chance to give you their reactions. Listeners will write notes and their own names on the handouts before returning them to you.

Our third Saturday meeting probably will be a critique session also, if you can’t make this one. In the meantime, keep in touch by joining our Facebook Open Forum at https://www.facebook.com/groups/pocatellowriters/.   Happy New Year!

DECEMBER 21st MEETING
Everybody seems pretty busy for the crazy holiday season, so we may as well cancel December’s mid-month meeting. Russell said he can pick back up next month with the January 4th critique meeting.
Have a very happy holiday and winter solstice, dear writer friends.

We don’t have a study topic or guest speaker for November’s mid-month meeting, so we can use the time for critiques. If you need constructive feedback on your WIP, please join us at this Saturday’s meeting.

Maximum reading is 10 pages double spaced. Make about 6 copies for people to follow along, Even if you have nothing to read, feel free to drop by just to listen, lend your reaction as a casual reader, or offer friendly advice as a fellow writer.

Also, if you have nothing to read, but are willing to lead a discussion or to share your expertise or recent experience on any aspect of the writing life, we would love to hear from you, this Saturday or at any other mid-month meeting. Hope to see you there.
