In order to make the most of our upcoming CRITIQUE session, we must have certain writing and critique goals set up, as well as discuss the guidelines for critiquing. In the first hour of this meetup, we will do the following: 1. Set goals for ourselves as writers 2. Discuss the basics of writing: a. Writing disciplines/routines b. Target word length and manuscript preparation c. Genre, Story Idea & Background Research After we've gone over these things, we'll discuss our critiquing goals, as well as guidelines for giving and receiving feedback. We will also schedule our big critique session for the month. There will be lots of information to gain-- many tips, techniques and lessons to share and explore, so please try to make it. I look forward to seeing all of you there! Warm Regards, Nutschell

    I can't believe how informative this was. It was great to have handouts that I could take home to review. Fun getting to know people and share! I can hardly wait for the next one!
