litcritters open session

Everyone is invited to join us as we talk about stories and writing this Saturday, the 26th, at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (Emerald Avenue, Ortigas Center). We'll be discussing the following stories (join the LitCritters group and download reading copies):

Thousand Year Eve by Sarge Lacuesta
A Godmother's Gift by January Mortimer
A Princess of the Earth by Mike Resnick

These past few weeks, we read, critiqued, blissed out on - or went on terrifying rants against - the following stories:

Giving Birth by Margaret Atwood
Lambing Season by Molly Gloss
The Happy Prince by Oscar Wilde
The Gentle Brush of Wings by David Wilson
Appleless by Aimee Bender
Save Me Plz by David Barr Kirtley
Jack's House by Jay Lake
The Fool, the Stick, and the Princess by Rachel Pollack
Found Objects by Jennifer Egan
A Place I've Never Been by David Leavitt
Fire-bringer by Nick Mamatas
Linkworlds by Will McIntosh
A Light in Troy by Sarah Monette
There's No Light Between Floors by Paul Tremblay
Man in the Mountain by JM McDermott

We love to read, we love to write and believe we learn how to write better stories by both reading and writing. Discussions about stories and writing should not be boring and stuffy and only for the privileged theorists - it should be fun and always looked forward to, something enjoyable, educational and social (reading is private, talking isn't).
