The first meeting of 2020 for the Scribblers of Brevard will be held, as usual, at the Eau Gallie Library, 1521 Pineapple Avenue, Melbourne, Florida, 32935. The date for that meeting is Saturday, January 25th, 2020. at 9.30 a.m.
We start gathering at 9.30 a.m. for food, coffee and chat (several members bring home-made or bought cakes and savories – though there is no obligation to do this) and then commence the meeting at 10.00 a.m.
The largest part of the meeting is devoted to members’ readings of their work, which can be work-in-progress or completed work of any genre or format, fiction or non-fiction. Each reader is given ten minutes to read their work aloud to the group after which the group offers thoughtful, appropriate and relevant feedback. All critiques are positive with remarks on the very successful aspects of the work and suggestions for any changes or improvements that might be made, if the author so wishes to make them. Any member who wishes to read at a subsequent meeting can put their name down on the list. Occasionally, some members can read a second piece, time permitting, and new visitors are always welcome to bring something to read if they so wish and there is time to include it.
After the readings have concluded, the president deals with any other business, which can include:
- Members’ writing successes or publications
- News about local, national and international writing competitions
- Upcoming events that Scribblers of Brevard are participating in
- Recommended book reads and film viewings
- Suggestions for changes to the format of meetings
- Minutes from the Previous Meeting
- Treasurer’s Report
- Any other business
