Brooklyn Speculative Fiction Writers Group

  • Jul 22, 2012 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Deadline for submission of stories to be critiqued is Monday of the week preceeding the Meetup. On Tuesday, 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 cat allergies! I have a CAT! >^..^<</p>

    The meetup used the Clarion workshop format, which worked very well. Everyone had obviously read all of the stories and gave good feedback, and many marked up the manuscripts to provide more detail. I found that people were able to give and take criticism well, which is great because I go to workshops to find people who will hold me to high standards.

    Hey all, sorry to miss you guys the first weekend back from Readercon. But I'll send my comments along. I really do like the Clarion method. I'ts not to far from what we do, but more disciplined.
