Cam's Group BSFW Novels in Progress Meetup

  • April 14, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This group is dedicated exclusively to novels. Please be prepared to read back through previous chapters of a novel-in-progress before committing to this group.

Deadline for submission of stories to be critiqued is Sunday, one week prior to  the Meetup. On Monday, I'll send out an email listing the stories to be critiqued and in what order. That list will also appear under Discussions and will be edited as changes occur.

Please make sure your manuscript is properly formatted. See our Procedures, located under the Pages tab, for guidelines and an example, as well as advice for a constructive critique. Having manuscripts already formatted makes the critiquing process easier.

Most of the meeting will be spent critiquing work of group members. There is a structure in place to make sure the critiques are as helpful as possible for everyone involved, and that the writers leave with a clear idea of what to do with their stories next.

We'll also spend some time talking about writing, sharing news and information, and getting to know one another. It's always easier to take constructive criticism from someone you know, so the social element of the group is as important as the work itself!

    Hey guys, please be sure to send your written critiques to the authors as soon as you can. We appreciate your company and conversation, however the written critique is even more helpfully, because we can refer to it directly as we do our rewrites. Thanks!

    Jonathan, you're a freaking ninja with that camera. I only remember you taking one picture, and it wasn't of me. Marcy's words, "Jonathan, you took my picture. I'm going to kill you."

    Would have been my first time to this particular group. Been to Brad's but that was some time ago. Had the misfortune of cutting my foot on a broken plate today and won't make it. Will be at the next.

    This was a fantastic and immensely helpful critique session. What made it even more helpful was having an outline for people to refer too.
