Last night’s Speedshopping event was tons of fun, and well worth the time! We had a fairly small crowd, but it included a poet, a couple essayists, several fiction writers, and our Apothecary host, Nick, even jumped in to get some brainstorming/prewriting advice from attendees. Everyone got feedback from at least four people, and with a diverse range of voices and styles, there was a lot of awesome critique work going on. And of course, coffee from Malaprop’s!
We’re going to be holding these Speedshopping sessions monthly from now on, and we hope more people come out and join in! It was extremely productive, and if you enjoyed it (or if you weren’t there but are interested) then help us spread the word.
