I am wondering if there are any English-language writers in Moscow who might be interested in forming a group, or at least getting together informally from time to time to discuss & critique projects we're working on.

Doesn't matter to me if you are pro or amateur, or if you write fiction or nonfiction (I do both, but am currently occupied with a large nonfiction project). Right now, I'd just like to see who's out there. PM me or post here if interested!

Hey, great idea. I'm a newly-published writer, in both fiction and non-fiction.

I Pm'd you, I think it's a good idea. I could certainly use the feedback occasionally.

My books are orginal written in German but have English, Polish and Chinese translation sold. So if you let me join as a non-english writer, I would attend

I#d be up for it.

Someone tried to get something similar off the ground a couple of years ago, and it then died a death. Maybe we could make it happen this time? :)

you should know by now that I will answer any direct question put to me. it's just that if the question doesn't get put, you're unlikely to get an answer :evilgrin:

Pity. It would have been awfully nice to see you before I'm outta here. :respect:

Good to see you all showing interest. I'm tentatively thinking of a get-together this upcoming weekend, & would like to know who will be available then.

maybe. not sure yet if I will be in town this weekend. should know by Thursday or so. sunday is better than saturday for me, I think. but weekday evenings are generally better than weekends - 8pm onwards.

As for me as I said before in my PM, late weekday afternoons or evenings are best as there are usually plans on the weekend involving the other half of this partnership that I am in :respect:

OK, may I propose:

-meet somewhere convenient (like a cafe) in the center
-choice of either Sat afternoon (anytime from 2-6) or Sun afternoon (ditto)

what suits people better?

Any writer is nothing without the reader ;)

I think we don't have enough interest to get regular meetings going.

Why not include some readers, like Igor suggests?

Sure, why not?

OK, anyone interested in things literary, please meet me at the Pushkin statue on Tverskaya at 3 PM on Sunday & we'll take it from there. I'll be holding a black leather bag.

Well, I showed up but nobody else did.

Maybe someone else can give it a try...
