The HPCP Writers’ Initiative Group
A group of practicing writers, all levels of experience, plans to meet once or twice a month; we ask that every participant seriously plan to attend at least once a month, and follow these guidelines:
- Each participant commits to bring something written to each meeting. It can be a part of a script you are working on, a scene, a character description–even if you only have an idea, write out your idea and bring that. The challenge we are accepting is to commit to actually putting something down on paper. For the purposes of this group, we are writing specifically for performance (i.e. not for the printed page).
- The shape of meetings evolve organically depending on what writers need: reading, acting out, constructive critique, whatever is needed.
- We always have an eye to connecting the writing with actual production, and may develop some programs to facilitate that as we grow.
- We assess our progress as a group quarterly so as to make whatever useful changes before recommitting for another three-month period.
