Georgia Perimeter College's Learning & Tutoring Center (LTC) sponsors The Writers' Circle, an ongoing group of students and community members who enjoy the writing process and seek the support and insight of fellow writers.
In Memoriam to Beth Horton
Dr. Beth Horton, co-facilitator & webscribe, passed away Sept 5, 2014. After a career in academia and technology, Beth joined GPC and taught literature, creative writing & research from 2003 - 2013.
At the sessions, writers read from works in progress and offer critiques. The group meets the first and third Friday of each month in LTC Dunwoody campus, LRC (Library Building) Room 3100, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Other Fridays and during breaks when the campus is closed, the group meets at an announced location. The sessions are free and open to the public.

UPDATED BI-LAWS! THE WRITERS' CIRCLE CODE OF CONDUCT:
- Critique the writing, not the writer
- Be specific, and give examples if you can
- Respect all group members even if you do not agree with their viewpoints. If you are unable to offer constructive feedback on a piece, keep silent.
- Remember, feedback is only a suggestion for your consideration
- Don't take feedback personally. It is a critique of your work, not you
- Listen to feedback without being defensive
- Accept praise for your work
SHOULD NON-ADHERENCE to the Code of Conduct by one or more club members cause a disturbance, the Facilitator has the authority to take corrective measures, including:
- End the current discussion and proceed to another subject
-Ask the member(s) involved to leave themeeting
