SF/F Group

This sub-group focuses on Science Fiction and Fantasy, so if you have anything that falls under that category — be it short story, poem or novel-in-progress — then come! We'd love to hear from you.

Our format allows each reader 15 minutes to present their work... followed by approximately 20 minutes of feedback from the other attendees. To ensure a fair opportunity to respond, each attendee is limited to 1 minute of feedback time. (Using this structure, we are usually able to get through four readers in any given night.)

If a reader elects to post their work in advance (NOT a requirement!), members will be able to access that work under the "More" > "Files" section from the drop-down menu, above.

Readers are:

  • Travis
  • Ryan
  • Greg
  • Heather

Backup Readers are:

  • Fraser
  • Bill F.
  • David
  • Sam (female)

    Bumped the cap to 27 this week, since a couple of our regulars were stuck on the waiting list. Also, there's a strong possibility that I'll either be very late or absent tomorrow night... although I might still be able to join folks at Bailey's afterwards, if I have to miss the meeting proper.

      Not making it anywhere tonight. My wife is still stuck in the NICU, finishing her shift. Somebody have an extra beer for me, okay?

      I suspect that you will have multiple volunteers.

    I am going to read the piece I posted for the last meeting as a back-up. I was hoping to make some edits to fix the thing I know were not working, but life around my house took over once again. So I apologize for not getting a better draft up, but that leaves you more to give me feedback on - On the plus side, my daughter has starting walking around again and talking - last week she said "mama" for the first time this year, then strung a sentence together and added "I love you mama" to make my wife's week significantly better.

    I posted the first one and a half chapters from my infamous "fluffy spy kitty" novel, which is what I ended up deciding to read tonight. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone. If anyone is interested in reading the whole novel (~75K words) and providing (much needed) feedback, it is complete and ready for comments.

    I have concert tickets for this night so I won't make it to the meeting, but maybe I'll make Bailley's, and I'll be at Allegra's Writer's Work Day. See y'all next time!

    I've got a draft of a work in progress posted. Will be more/different by tomorrow, but those inclined to can read the draft.

  • Greg D.

    Hi all - unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make tomorrow night, which helps with capacity but also flagging that this opens a reader slot as well. Hope to see you all in 2 weeks. Thanks.

  • Fraser

    Okay, my backup story is posted to files. It's long, so I'm putting it up well ahead of time.

    Final notice: Upcoming monthly Writer's Work Day--this Sun. at noon. Directions to my place are "Directions to Birnamwood" in the files. I've hosted a few of these and they've all been fun and productive. It's a FB event too. Hope to see you here:)
