Novel Writers Meetup


Novel Writers Meetup is a coming together of novel writer minds. If you've got at least one chapter written, you're welcome to come on down to get feedback or general pep talks.

Rules of the Game:

-Bring 1 chapter to read to the group (Yes, that means YOU read YOUR story ALOUD. Don't worry. It's not nearly as scary as it sounds, but it's incredibly helpful for you as a writer. Trust me.)

-Bring enough copies of your chapter for everyone to read along and critique. You will get your chapter pages back. This is just so your audience can mark the pages and follow along better.

-MAXIMUM of 10 pages can be critiqued at one time (or 5 pages front and back), double-spaced, and of a reasonable font size. Reason? Easy of reading/editing. This also limits what people bring and how much time one reads a piece aloud.

-All genres are welcome. Sci-fi, horror, romance, general, literary, surreal, urban, paranormal, thriller, mystery.  However, keep it fiction and keep it novel-based.

-That means: no memoirs, no short stories, and no poetry. There are other meetups within ABQ Ink Slingers designed with these specific categories in mind.

    Sorry, Rene. I'm not feeling well. Hope to join next time...or when we get back from Europe (if I get well in time to go.) :(

      So sad! I got so excited when I saw you RSVP'd too. Oh well, I hope you feel better. And have a great time in Europe if I don't see you before your trip!

      Thanks so much, Rene. Not sure we're still going. If I don't get this flare under control, it looks like trip will be postponed. Hoping sincerely that that does not happen.

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.
