This thread will be used to keep track of what topics you would like to talk about (within reason, of course, and they should have some relation to writing/literature). I’ll also keep track, in this main post, of what ideas we have already used as time goes on.
I would prefer that topics that still want to continue after the Coffeehouse chat ends for that evening be moved into a thread (because there’s clearly enough interest in the topic to warrant the interest of others who may not be in attendance).
