    Writing Group

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Admin, Nov 9, 2011.

    What would be some good activities for a group of people getting together to write, get critiqued, and have fun?

    You could run a workshop where one person leads with exercises for the group. There's a wide range of things you can do with those. You can also have a write-in, where the purpose of the whole session is to sit down and write for however long. In theory, the company others keeps you on the straight and narrow. There's also the more social side of things, where you can just get people together and talk about anything.

    Something I have found fun is everyone keeping to the same story and writing a sentence each. As in one person starts the story off with a sentence, it's passed to the next person to write the next sentence and so on until you have an entirely group made story. It can be fun to see where it goes and to note the contrasting styles of a group within the one text.
