Silverfish Writers' Forum

13 September 2008

The next meeting of the Silverfish Writers' Forum will be on Saturday, 13 September 2008 at 2.30pm (since the first Saturday of September has been taken up by the launch of Matthew Thomas’ book Tales from the Court and other stories). As usual three people will read their works and present them for criticism and comment. This free forum is held on the first Saturday of each month (as long as interest lasts) and is open to all.The intention for this Writers' Forum is for it to become a monthly meeting for aspiring creative writers in English to read their works, request feedback, network, form their own splinter writers' groups, and to share their stories with others having similar interests.

This session is ideal for you if:
1. You write short fiction, biography or travelogues
2. You have unpublished short stories, biographies or travelogues of around 2000-3000 words to share
3. You crave constructive criticism on your writing to help you improve
4. You want to continue writing till you die
5. You are willing to work hard to improve your writing
6. You are passionate about writing
7. You intend to write enough stories for a whole book (not a one-story-in-ten-years writer)
8. You are thick-skinned and resilient and not afraid of criticism

This session may be a waste of time for you if:
1. You want to write mainly to make money
2. You only want to be a writer but you are not interested in the hard work (or you merely intend to be famous for being famous)
3. You are not open to criticism of your writing
4. You are not willing to share your stories.
5. You are not interested in reading many different genres and authors
6. You think being a writer is all about glamour
7. You think your writing is already perfect
8. You have a weak heart
9. You like to dominate events by not allowing anyone else to speak (or present their stuff)
10. You think it's all about you, you, you and you.
