April 2, 2017, Meeting Minutes

We received our posters for the Writers' Open Mic Night (see previous post). They were distributed among members who were willing to post them in establishments around town. 

Harry shared information about the following event: Check this out, then join us on Apr 27th for the grand launch of the newest mouthy zine-kid on the block. The first issue will be available at the event and it's all free! And there'll be ice cream - yum. Come on out and get all coolio social with each other and help us celebrate the newest coolest hippest artsiest edgiest mag-zine in the area.

Sonja led the meeting this week and came with a sheet of "fake" fortune cookie prompts as well as a bag of tasty, crunchy, real fortune cookies.

The prompts - At the end of your meal at a Chinese Restaurant, you receive a fortune cookie. You crack it open to reveal a hand written note that says:

1. He's not who he says he is. Ask Annie.
2. I know it was you.
3. Karma is a bitch sweetheart.
4. Will you marry me?
5. Your food has been poisoned. Call 911!
6. You will be mine.
7. They're holding me prisoner! Call the police!
8. Go to the kitchen for a BIG surprise.
9. Union Station. 2pm Sunday under the big clock. Woman in the red hat.
10. Meet me at Motel 6 at 11 p.m.


Pick a fortune cookie from the bag and write something from the fortune inside.

These prompts generated a lot of creativity among the members present. Some used a prompt from above, some used their cookie prompt, some used both.

Please share your writing on this blog.

Our next meeting is Sunday, April 23, 2017, at 1:30pm. Clare will be leading.
We will see you at the Open Mic Night on Thursday, April 20th, 7pm at the Orangeville Public Library
