Hello Writers! (And other talented people!)
The Merely Writers Group meets TWICE A MONTH ON SUNDAYS at 7 p.m.. The dates for 2020 from January until May are as follows:
January 12 and 26
February 9 and 23
March 8 and 22
April 12 and 26
May 3 and 17
Summer dates are TBD based upon everyone's schedule.
Meetings are held at the Atlanta Cuban Club at 5797 New Peachtree Rd, Atlanta, GA 30340. Parking is allowed in front of the club as well as at the businesses to either side of the club.
Since there are no membership dues, we ask that you to bring $5 to donate to the Atlanta Cuban Club for allowing us to use their space. We also encourage everyone 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). Writers will sign in and the order will be first come, first serve - so please come early and come often:) After reading several pieces, we break for food and mingling, and then pick back up ending no later than 10 p.m.
In 2019, we assembled an Acting Ensemble for the purposes of reading these works so that writers can focus on the presentation of the work. However, it's not unusual to pull from the "peanut gallery" to help read, so actors who are writers and/or writers who are actors - you just may have the opportunity to read so please.
We love audience feedback! So even if you aren't a writer or an actor but want to participate, please come! It's a lot of fun and our group has been growing rapidly! ALL ARE WELCOME.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Writing Development Coordinator, Daniel Guyton, at email@example.com.
We hope to see you there!
