Happy October! To celebrate the spookiest month, we will be reading The Jaunt by the king of spooky–Stephen King. A blend of Sci-Fi and horror, this story is about a family in the future going on holiday to Mars. It is widely regarded as one of King’s best works of short fiction. It can be found in the short story collection Skeleton Crew or by searching online.
This month’s critical reading workshop will take place Wednesday October 18th at 7pm at the restaurant of the Double Tree Suites Downtown.
Each month, the critical reading workshop meets to read the work of a published author from a writer’s perspective, breaking down what makes the story work and why. It’s one of the best ways you can improve as a writer. Never been to a workshop? Check out our FAQ.
This event is free and open to the public, and you do not need to be a CCC member to attend.
The Doubletree Suites Hotel is located at 50 S Front St. Columbus 43215. The first six floors of the building are a parking garage, and the floor above that is marked “Lobby”—that’s where we’ll be. On that floor is a swanky pub/restaurant. You can park either in the aforementioned parking garage or at the meters right outside the building on Front St. If you’re parked in the garage, you don’t need to leave the building, simply find the elevator and take it up to the floor marked “Lobby.” If you’re on the street, go through the sliding doors and the elevators will be on your right.
Check back next week when we’ll be posting discussion questions for you to mull over before the meetup.
