Critique Meeting

Hi Everyone, please join us for our weekly critique meeting. We are holding this every Saturday afternoon at Vie de Boheme Winery (which is open to all ages). They have a great back room that can be closed off from the rest of the restaurant so it's an ideal place for reading aloud.

We are using a read-aloud format. If you wish to have your work critiqued, please bring a short piece or chapter (about 2-3 double-spaced pages) to read out loud to the group. It can be any genre, including non-fiction or poetry, but we do ask that the material be PG-13 as we are in a public place and don't put age restrictions on our writers. 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. We don't charge for the meetings, but we do ask that everyone buy something to support the venue so they let us come back. :)

Please RSVP so we have an accurate count to give the restaurant.

    Bringing the first chapter of the new novel, just in case. And one story and two poems, if time is too tight to read the chapter.

    Sorry for the last minute RSVP change. My kids start school on Wednesday and we are running around like chickens getting them ready for their big day. Looking forward to next time.

    I'll bring the first chapter of the book I'm writing, just in case. It's more than 3 pages, but you can tell me when to sit down and shut up.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
