Grupo para Escritores -Group for Writers
Posted November 6th, 2008 - 5:18 pm by from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Permalink)
Hi, everyone! Marion Hauvette and I are starting a writers' group. The idea is that we will meet bi-weekly (perhaps more often if there is interest) to read and critique each other's work.

We call the first meeting this Sunday afternoon (9 Nov.) at 2 PM (14). I'm not sure which park we'll be meeting in but want to get this announcement out in time for everyone to produce some work for Sunday. For this and every subsequent meeting, we ask that each person attending brings a sample of work. For this first meeting, by way of introduction, we ask that the work be no longer than 2 pages. Please bring a couple of copies so they can be passed around and discussed.

It is our hope that this can serve as a way to grow as writers, help with language building skills and foster relationships among writers to encourage and improve our work.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP here. Your ideas are welcome - this is a collaboration between us all! We are open to all languages. I will be useless for reading Marion's writing in French, but we can still discuss ideas in Castellano or english, and if someone else speaks French, too, great!

Hola a todos! Marion Hauvette y yo etan formando un grupo para escritores. La idea es que reunimos cada dos semanas (posiblamente mas si hay bastante interes) para leer y criticar nuestros trabajo.

Empiezaremos este domingo (9 Nov) a las 14. No estoy segura en que parque reunirimos, pero quero decir Uds. con bastante tiempo preparar un poco trabajo para domingo. Para este reunion (y todos en la futura) pedimos que Uds. traigan algo de sus obras. Para este primero reunion no debe ser mas largo que 2 paginas. Por favor, lleva copias - entonces todos pueden leerlas y charlar sobre tus obras!

Esperamos que este puede ser un forum para improbar, ayudar con nuestras habilidades de lengua y fomentar relaciones con otros escritores para animar y mejorar nuestros obras!

Si le gustaria asistir, por favor diganos aca. Agradeceríamos cualquier recomendación que Uds. tienen - este es un colaboración entre todos. Estamos abiertos a cualquier lenguas. Por ejemplo, soy inutil leer el frances de Marion, pero todavia podremos hablar sobre sus ideas en ingles o castallano - y si alguien mas escriba en frances, mejor!

Y perdón para mi castellano - se que es mal, pero espero que es bastante claro!

I think the idea is great. I am kind of new in Couchsurfing and I´ve never taken part in any kind of activities. But I think this could be a very good way to start.

I have some concerns, though. In my opinion 2pm on sunday is very early and, given the current weather, too hot. There will be no park in which you´ll be able to enjoy a nice afternoon at that time. I would suggest maybe at 5pm or so, remember we are having the hour changed!

Also, as far as I understood, you are proposing to bring something in any language, being English, Spanish or French. Which is fine, but there will be some people who won´t be able to participate unless they speak at least two of those languages... Or maybe I misunderstood the idea.

Anyhow, I think the idea is wonderful and I would very much like to be a part of it.

Hola !
me encanta la idea... y siempre sirve la crítica para escribir, es tan importante como la inspiración.

Creo que sí me animo a ir este domingo... preparando algo nuevo si puedo.

Pregunto eso sí... en que idioma haremos los textos?

Besos!

Caro

Cualquier lengua prefieres. Si no no somos bastante fluidos, esperemos que alguien puede ser. Tambien, podremos charlar de sus ideas. Espero que le gustaría reunir con nosotros!

Es aca que la majoria de repuestos estan:
