BSFW Short Story Meetup

  • Mar 21, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Deadline for submission of stories to be critiqued is Friday of the week preceeding the Meetup. On Saturday, I'll send out an email listing the stories to be critiqued and in what order. Print out and mark up your copies in advance.

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!

WARNING for those with fish allergies! I have a FISH!>^..^<

    Good question. I haven't seen anything critiqued in the group as overtly political has Vonnegut's but a ton of writers have come through here. But, we'll happily read yours.
