Welcome to Paducah Prose Writers!

We are looking for writers who need a little constructive critisizm and can dish it out as well as take it. If I'm talking about you, bring a few pages of anything (the good, the bad, and the really rough drafts) and read for us. And don't worry, we're all as shy, nervous, and scared as you are!
All gramatical geniuses, professional editors, and english majors are also welcome, no reading submissions required.

PPW's first meeting

I would like to thank everyone who was able to attend our first meeting. It was definitely a younger group than I expected, but hearing from young writers was a wonderful experience!

I will schedule next month's meeting as soon as I can, and I will get the word out there. Please, tell other writers. A strong writing community is as important as a strong art community. Creative people thrive when they work together.

Ok, I've been thinking, and I don't have a list of rules right now. We are all adults and I am sure we can treat each other with respect. So maybe that's the rule.

Respect one another.

For an entertaining list of rules that would apply, click this link http://hollylisle.com/fm/Articles/group1-a.html#critique. It is a good site.

Mission Statement

Paducah Prose Writers wish to encourage and support writers so they will be free to share ideas and opinions.

We are here to critique without expressing personal value judgment on content, freeing writers to truly express themselves.

I want to meet you April 18th at 3pm!

Mark you Calenders! April 18, 2009 3:00

If you aren't in the throws of novelling, now is the time to start. This will be the first meeting of PPW and I can't wait! Don't worry, you don't even know how good your going to get at this whole writing thing.

I will post a few guidelines soon. Don't panic, it won't be anything difficult. Stuff like, no tomato throwing (I must insist on civility).
