Wednesday Night Critique


We are using a read-aloud format. If you wish to have your work critiqued, please bring a short piece or chapter (about 3-5 double-spaced pages) to read out loud to the group. It can be any genre, including non-fiction or poetry. 

You don't have to read - you can show up to listen and critique or just listen. We don't have set time limits on critiques - all we ask is that you be mindful of how many readers are reading after you so that everyone gets a chance to read. This is a public venue so please support it by buying something. :)

Please RSVP so we know who is coming. Also please note this is a tavern so unfortunately it is 21 and over.

    Thanks Risa for last-minute hosting. Thanks everyone for the feedback. Even the ideas and suggestions I don't use give me a new way of looking at my story and characters, and make my writing better. It's great to hear everyone else's work too, and hopefully offer them the same.

    We have had a last minute venue change due to the fact Sloans is closed. We are at Risa's house at 68 NE Stanton. We are in the back yard enjoying the weather.
