NOTE: All activities are optional. The only requirement for the club is participation (attending a meeting or posting a comment on the blog). You can watch the meeting recording for more information and discussion.

  1. So i must submit my short story to you through email?

  2. There is a short story that I am working on but it has some holiday stuff in it. The holiday short story month is over but can I still send it in? It will probably be longer that 500 words.

    • I will post it if you email it to me, but any post for the blog needs to be 500 words or less. You can send an excerpt if you want.

  3. okay, I might send you an excerpt

  4. So… I’ve read everything about the workshop through these posts and through the one above, and I am still slightly lost… only slightly! I was wondering what it means when it says, “Space is limited. Members will be accepted into the workshop based on a story.” Space is limited? Like, what space? And also, we can be accepted, but all we have to do is submit an original story? So, like, you’re not voted in based on writing skills or keeping the readers attention, or spelling errors, etc.? I also realized that you said more information will be given about it by the beginning of January, but you also said, “I wanted to give you a heads up to give you time to get your submission together if you’re interested.” So, I assume that means that were on some sort of time limit, as well. Just wondering a few things… thanks so much, Mrs. Emery!

  5. Hi, I’m unable to make some meetings and was told I need to post on the blog. Do I post replys to other students’ works only? and for this is it okay we I post a poem every few days because my schedule is too hectic to sit down and write everyday?

    • Hey Holly,
      You can reply to student’s work or write to one of the writing prompts. You can post a comment about anything. For NaPoWriMo, you can post your poems whenever during the month, it doesn’t have to be everyday. If it’s day 10, and you want to post to Day 1, you can do that.

  6. I am having a bit of trouble balancing everything at once since I seem to like to spend way too long on a single assignment in school, but I am so excited for everything that I can’t sit still.

  7. Hey guys! I look forward to meeting with you all soon! – Anna
