Critiques and Discussion - Topic - Revealing Personal Information

  • Jun 8, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Breaking open our souls and putting it on paper is just fine in a memoir when we do it at home, on paper or a computer. But what happens when we have to let someone else read it? Handing your work over for critique is difficult, but it's the first step in letting go. Let's discuss just how much we share, and how to let go of it and put it out there.

Remember to read ALL submissions and critique them for each meetup. Thanks! 

Please read the Structure and Critique Guidlines in the Files before attending. Members who RSVP can submit work to be critiqued, about 1,500 words, up to five days prior to the meetup. Please change your RSVP if you can't attend to give others the space. After two no-shows, you will be dropped from the group.

We're in the back room to the right at Terra Java, unless otherwise noted. Remember to patronize our local coffee shop and grab something to drink and/or eat before we start promptly at 2.

There is a $1 fee for each meeting, which pays for snacks and the Meetup.com website. We'll get started promptly at 2, so get here early if you can. Let's get reading and critiquing!

    Wow! What a group of serious writers. I am amazed at the depth of knowlege and commitment to writing. The critiques are priceless and have given me that spark and motivation to write even more. I also appreciate the kindness and welcome from each and every person. Looking forward to future meetings.

    Hi Everyone,
    Just got a new notebook and the people at Office Max said it was ready to go. They didn't install Microsoft Word, so I'm not able to open all the submissions. To say the least, I'm more than a bit frustrated. I know I paid for it and its installation. I've got to get my daughter to a job training in the morning, and won't have time to check with Office Max until the afternoon. I'll have to wait to see everyone in July. Sorry for the late notice.
    Have a great meeting. Cathy

    Sorry I can't make it tomorrow. Will catch up with you again in two weeks. Have been on the road. You're topic tomorrow is very interesting to me - maybe you can remember the highlights for two weeks from now? -:)

      Darn! We'll miss you. Yes, we can talk about it anytime.

    Really wish I could make this one but will be far from Phx most of June. Will there be some type of meeting minutes or notes of key points discussed...? Hoping to learn about how to share when others are involved/guilty etc etc. Thanks.

      I'll send you notes if I can. We can revisit this topic again, too.

      Looks like you are coming after all!

  • Cathy F.

    Miss you too. See you when you can get off.

    ARRGH! Remind me not to break another foot! I was given the worst schedule when I returned to work. Can't wait until I have off a Sunday and can attend again! Miss you all!

    • Valerie D.

      Aww, we miss you. Hang in there!
