I write, you write, but is it good? Is it interesting? Publish-worthy? All great novelists have had some kind of support group. A select crew of intelligent, creative individuals to bounce ideas off of or to open up a new pathway for telling our stories. I've been part of several writer's workshops in the past, and they were inspiring, but expensive. I'm proposing we meet in each others' homes or local cafes to critique/discuss our novels in progress. I'd like to keep the group small, but if we …

Roberto Bolaño (1953-2003) is an amazing and intriguing novelist and poet from Chile. His novels (in translation) include 2666, The Savage Detectives, Distant Star, and Amulet. I find his work challenging but rewarding. Let's get together and talk about his work! This book club will, in the beginning at least, focus solely on the work of Roberto Bolano--his novels, short stories, and if there is enough interest, his poetry, essays, and interviews. All of the selections will be his work in transl …
Do you aspire to create your own comic book or graphic novel? Do you want to be part of the next wave of comic book talent? Why should we have to look to the city? We can do it right here in New Jersey. I don't know about you but I have spent a lifetime living with stories in my head and those stories are meant to be told visually. That doesn't always lend itself to a sense of community or a social life for that matter. Let's change that. If you are working on something, have already released a …

Technology and the web have changed how fiction, poetry, essays, and memoirs are being distributed, and have begun to alter the process of writing, reading, sharing, and consuming texts. Words are finding new modalities, and innovators across disciplines have begun to experiment with how technology might improve their creation, curation, and consumption. Code Meet Print is the community at the intersection of texts + technology that will contemplate, define, and help build better interfaces for …
This group is a chance to get together, in a strictly social setting, with your fellow starving writers (be they novelists, poets, playwrights, screenwriters, online bloggers, manifesto writers, those people that assemble ransom notes from letters cut from magazines, and any other raving looneys who dream of someday assembling words much gooder) and realize you aren't alone in the universe for wanting to create a little magic with words. Please note this is not a workshop. You will not be asked …
Remember the days of photocopy zines? Thinking about starting your own webcomic? Want to start an autobiographical journal comic? Or work on your magnum opus of a graphic novel? The Indie Comics Collective (of NYC) is a group that will aim to provide a space for work collaboration, constructive criticism, inspiration, and of course, socialization. There are several meetup groups in the city that focus on getting together and talking about comics, but relatively few that focus on making comics an …
