Program: Gary Zenker on Flash Fiction and WritersBloxx
Regular attendees of BVWG meetings will recall a evening a few months ago when member Gary Zenker talked about a kickstarter campaign he was planning to help fund the production of WritersBloxx, a writing prompt board game he’d developed.
During the June meeting of the BVWG, we’re going to get more than an update on that project: Gary will lead the group in a discussion of flash fiction and a live interactive writing exercise using WritersBloxx. Members will be able to share their work on the spot to compare and contrast character, plot and conflict elements within a flash fiction context.
A longtime member of the BVWG, Gary also facilitates two sister groups: The Main Line Writers Group, which meets in King of Prussia, and the Wilmington Writers Group, which meets in Glen Mills. The WritersBloxx campaign will be hitting Kickstarter in the next 30 days and you can learn more about the WritersBloxx pre-launch at www.WritersBloxx.com.
So, grab your pads and pencils and come on out for an evening of spirited gaming and flash fiction production with the BVWG. We’ve never tried anything like this before, so we have no idea how it’s going to play out. You’ll get a first-hand look at Gary’s game (and Christmas is coming, you know, so this could be just the thing for some people on your gift list) and perhaps someday you’ll look back and say you were one of the first to participate within a long tradition of gaming with the BVWG (or not — we’ll see)!
Although meetings officially start at 7:00 pm, many of us show up early to have a meal and catch up with each other. You can also order food and drink (on your own tab) throughout the meeting. The program generally lasts approximately 75 minutes. However, people stay as long as they like after the official program and we sometimes close the place.
Officers of the group are currently:
- Mark A.R. Mitchell – President
- James Breslin – Vice President
- Jorgen Flood – Treasurer
- Scott Pruden – Publicity
- Lisa Doan – Office at large
- [OPEN] – Secretary
- Gary Zenker – PR Advertising and Meetup Administrator
- Dick Lolla – Web Site Administrator
