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.

                                                 A Chocolate                Chapbook?.

  Is there such a thing as an inspirational  munch? 

          The consensus of a recent Circle was unanimous (well, almost unanimous) that it's chocolate, chocolate, chocolate  that entices the muse!

The lone dissent:  popcorn!

Update:  Another dissenter!  How about wine?
And another:  Irish coffee!  (assuming it's not convenient to kiss the Blarney Stone!)

What's your favorite treat to get the creative juices going?

Overheard at recent Circle meetings :

Writing is by necessity a lonely endeavor.  Having a community of kindred spirits mitigates the isolation.

"I leave the group with renewed enthusiasm to press on in my own endeavors."

"For me the sessions are filled with moments of tiny lightbulbs going off in my head -- and what writer doesn't need that!"

"Invariably I leave the meetings fired up and ready to tackle the next phase of what I am working on!"
