JANUARY 31, 2019: Read-In With Us in January!

Barnes and Noble, Athens, Georgia

6:30-8:30 pm

Come out to Barnes and Noble Cafe and practice your public reading skills with a supportive group of your peers! All types of writing are welcome at our Read-Ins. We **do** have a time limit of 20 minutes per writer for both reading and feedback so keep that in mind as you choose your piece to share with us. This is **not** a critique group; however, you definitely can request suggestions and ask questions of the group if you wish to get some specific feedback. We like to have fun, keep it positive, and enjoy sharing our accomplishments! Barnes and Noble Cafe does not permit outside food and beverages so please do respect their wishes so we can continue to hold our monthly meetings in their cafe. They’ve been very supportive and they **do** sell Starbucks beverages and sandwiches, snacks and desserts. If you cannot stay the whole time, no worries! If you can rsvp in advance please do so, but it is not mandatory to attend. Questions? Comments? Please send me a message in the “Contact” section.
