New Year, New Location

Hello Lakeland Writers! Many of us were able to attend our trial meeting at the North Lakeland Panera Bread; we decided to make it our new home.

The Shoppes of Lakeland (Northside) 4159 US Hwy 98 N, Lakeland, FL 33809

There is plenty of parking, plenty of chairs, and plenty of time to share up to 1000 unpublished words with the group. Please join us!

Monday, January 14 @ 6:00 pm

Monday, February 11 @ 6:00 pm

Monday, March 18 @ 6:00 pm

Need a writing prompt? Consider starting your story for the upcoming Collection: Writers @ Work:

It’s all about construction. Writers build stories and poems. Some are epic skyscraper poems, some are bungalow flash fiction stories. What kind of construction worker are you or is your work? How about your characters? Are they constantly evolving, robots, colorful, crazy-eyed, comical, whack-a-doodles? Tell us about your working environment or what you’d wish it was, or maybe what it used to be and now fame has changed it all! Or perhaps what a work-in-progress means to you. The construction area is boundless, so have fun with it.

RPLA and The Collection Submissions open February 1

Reminder!

Hello Lakeland Writers! As you know we have been searching for a new location (as Concord Coffee limits our critique times).

We are going to hold a trial meeting on Monday, December 10 @ 6:00 at Panera Bread @ The Shoppes of Lakeland (Northside) 4159 US Hwy 98 N, Lakeland, FL 33809. If you are available, I’d love for you to join me to check out this new location. 

They have a small space for us to use, and while we cannot reserve it, we can see if the atmosphere is right for our group and hopefully have volunteers to stake it out and snag it for us!

We can determine the date, time, etc if we choose to change.

ALSO…I still plan to hold a regular meeting on December 19 (not December 12) as previously advertised at Concord Coffee @ 6:00pm.

If I have completely confused you, please email me!

Remember to bring up to 1000 unpublished words to share with the group.
