Hello Writers! (And other talented people!)
The Merely Writers Group meets the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month). We will meet, as always, at the Atlanta Cuban Club at 5797 New Peachtree Rd, Atlanta, GA 30340.
As always, we ask you to bring $5 to donate to the Atlanta Cuban Club for allowing us to use their space. We also encourage anyone to bring snacks or potluck. It's always fun to eat while we listen to great plays. The Club will be selling beer, wine, water, and soda (prices vary, but are cheaper than most bar prices).
For those who are new, the process goes like this: Writers bring in 10-15 minute selections of their work (either a complete short play, or some scenes from a longer play). They put their names in a hat, and we draw the names in the order they will be presented. We then read 7 or 8 plays, based on the order of names that we draw. Of course, we encourage actors and non-writers to participate as well. We love audience feedback, and we love having actors to help us out with the readings. Each playwright is given the opportunity to cast whomever they like in their piece, so if you're a good actor, there's a great chance you'll be cast. The actors will then perform, and the audience then gives feedback. It's a lot of fun, and our membership has been growing pretty quickly. We typically end before 10pm.
We hope to see you there!
