: (A location has not been chosen yet.)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 will update you on the venue for this meetup as soon as I find us a suitable place. The date is still tentative--we might move it to Aug. 11th, depending on everyone's availability and on the venue's availability. I will definitely keep you posted.
In the meantime, please RSVP for this event. Let me know whether you can make it or not and if the date is good for you.
