Midnight Metaphors

GCC Creative Writers Club

Open to all GCC students who want to explore their craft: poetry and short stories

Drop-in visitors are always welcome.

The club members meet the first and third Wednesdays of the month

from  3:00 to 4:00 p.m.  in the SU 123B

for literary fun,  readings,  discussion,  and feedback.

  • Share your latest or proudest writings.
  • Get Feedback on your writing and ideas, brainstorm further ideas, laugh, and enjoy yourself with other individuals who possess similar interests.
  • Appreciate some great writers and discuss useful writing techniques.
  • Join the club and be enrolled on the Canvas site filled with creative writing information and references.

During the meetings we share writing ideas, snacks, laughter, and motivation.  Students choose to read their pieces aloud and others comment, providing compliments and suggestions.   Frequently, we will announce writing contests and discuss publication.  Occasionally, we will have guest speakers, often local poets and writers.  Sometimes, we will go on field trips to experience the presentations of local writers.  Periodically, we will plan poetry and fiction slams and celebrations.
