Saturday Critique

This is our regularly scheduled critique session. Post your writing and get feedback. We also discuss the creative writing process, self-publishing, traditional publishing, and more.

We can review a maximum of 7 submissions per meeting, and we review submissions in the order they were received,  so get yours in early!


Please read the guidelines before uploading your work:

 • Once you've uploaded your excerpt, please label it (in the file description) with the date of the Meetup you plan to attend, i.e. "This is for the 11/01/13 meetup up," and let the group know you've uploaded material for critique by posting a comment here in the comment box, i.e. "I've uploaded [insert file name] for critique." This will help members find your work.

 • Submit your work no later than the Wednesday before we meet.



Let us know if you want a spot. If someone can no longer attend, we will put you down for the free slot.

You can also get a head start on RSVPs by clicking the calendar tab above and scrolling through it to view (and RSVP) for upcoming meetings before they are announced.

    Sorry I was unable to attend. I was only aware that space became available later on in the day. Otherwise I would have attended.

    As always I look forward to group, but I'm feeling a bit under the weather this morning, so I'll miss you all, and see you next meet.

    Hey guys. We are sorry to have to change our RSVP at the last moment. We had an emergency come up early this morning and will not be able to attend. We wanted to give you the heads up as early as possible so that our spots can be backfilled. Again, sorry for the short notice. We look forward to seeing all of you next time!

    To ensure consideration I submitted the chap early. And then tinkered with it. Added dialogue and conflict to spice up slow section on academia. If you reviewed the original, ignore the revised file just uploaded.

    Hate to miss the meeting, I was eager to get feedback about my re-write, but the beach is calling :) see you at the next meeting.

    Hi everyone, I just submitted my piece for Saturday. For those I promised to send more edits to last meetup (Michael and Trevor), I'll get those finished up tomorrow. I had a very crazy few weeks. Sorry about that! See you all soon.
