Living Room January 11, 2011

I just had to come up with something special for a SPLAB meeting on 1/11/11.  Sharpen your pencils and bring some paper boys & girls. I am going to open up the evening with a  quick 15 minute writing exercise to keep the juices flowing. It’s a good way to shake things up, and who knows–you might just end up with  a complete piece or a good start to something you want to keep working on.  Afterwards, we’ll read and critique each other’s work as usual.

Don’t forget, just two weeks to go until our first raffle drawing of the New Year. As usual, we’ve got some super cool prizes, and there will be three winners. YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN on January 25th, and you get one entry for every $5 you donate to SPLAB.  Donations to this month’s raffle include goodies ranging from movie passes to Full Tilt Ice Cream and more! Remember, YOUR donations help us keep the doors open and maintain a vibrant literary arts scene in the heart of Columbia City.
