Some suggestions so far:
The idea is to devote some time nonfiction pieces, specifically commentary, much like the type found in Sexis and Eden Café. While the purpose wouldn’t be to write specifically for Sexis or EC, it would certainly be a thought and would hopefully result in even better writers and pieces.
The idea would be for people to bounce ideas and pieces off of one another for feedback and suggestions.
I often see threads where people state that they’re thinking about writing for Sexis, EC or somewhere else, but aren’t sure if they’re good enough. The heart of this idea would be for writers of all skill sets to help one another improve and grow their style.
What about having a discussion prompt suggested about a week or two before the meeting? Perhaps one for fiction and one for nonfiction.
Is it possible to submit parts of stories? If so, do I still own the rights?
