Our writers' workshops typically meet once a month.
The location changes from time to time, but we typically meet at a coffee shop, restaurant or library in the downtown Columbus or Bexley area.
Normally, we request that all pieces that you'd like feedback on be submitted by midnight one week before the workshop. This gives everyone time to read that week's work and formulate some thoughts before we arrive. You can always find the next workshop or event on the calendar. During the winter of 2013, we're restructuring our organization, and may offer alternative events in lieu of workshops. Please check the calendar for details.
The co-op is available to provide feedback on short stories, essays, poetry, novels and more. However, our current focus is on original short stories. If you'd like feedback on a longer work, please consider breaking it into chapters or groups of 5,000 to 8,000 words.
So far, our group has a diversity of skill and experience levels, from beginners to published academians. This provides a fantastic spectrum of insight, and all of the feedback has been incredibly useful.
Although our group is open to writers of all ages, our members are primarily adults. Some subject matter might not be suitable for writers under 16.
You do not need to be a paid co-op member to participate in our workshops, everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
Writers can also get feedback and advice on their writing through our online writers' forum, which is available only to paid Writer Members of Columbus Creative Cooeprative. Register now.
