Meet and Critique IX

Come join us for our ninth meeting in Union City! Last month's meeting was our biggest ever so let's try and break the record.

If you are an author that would like to be read for this meeting, please contact the organizer (Kieran) directly. If you plan to participate, you must RSVP so the organizer can send readings and information via e-mail. We'll be accepting submissions until 3/17/13 so we can send out the readings on 3/18/13 for participants to read.

It should be noted that this date is also Easter. Whether you celebrate it or not, make sure this meeting doesn't interfere with any plans you have with family, overlarge rabbits, etc.

Still hoping for another moderator volunteer or two. It's so easy you're already qualified if you've attended one of our meetings already. Someone has already already volunteered but it helps to have a friend take the pressure off so please don't hesitate to throw your hat in the ring.

    I mistakenly thought this was at 330 -like last time. Rats. I apologize for missing out.

      So sorry you missed us! It will usually start at 2:00. The late start was a fluke. Hope to see you at the next one.

    I wanted to thank you all for reading my story and offer your critique today. The comments and advice you all gave mean a lot to me and I plan on going over your notes again and possibly making a few changes to the manuscript. Thank you all so much!
    I am looking forward to our next meet up.

    Hi! I'm interested in this meet-up :). I understand it's much too late to actually be an active participant for the event, but would it still be alright to just stop by and get a clearer picture of what the fun's about? (I also realize this is last-minute to ask such a question, but I only recently found out a.k.a. just now.)

      Sure! You can get a feel for how our process works and what the group is like.

      To minimize disruption, please arrive at the beginning. Then you'll also get to hear the Rules of Engagement. You can excuse yourself when you get bored. ;)

    I have a short story I would like to share, but since this will be my first meeting with the group I should save it for another meeting. Also does anyone ever share poetry with the group?

      No iambs were harmed in the creation of this poem? Then I'd go ahead and submit.

      Well, after being encouraged by Kieran to submit a piece for my first meeting with you guys, I've sent him a short story. I hope you all enjoy it.

    Hey guys, I'm putting on a Fantasy Faire in San Jose and as part of the event I'm inviting local writers to share their works with the patrons of the faire. For more info on the event if you're interested in participating, please see www.sjfantasy.com - Jennifer, I hope you don't mind the small plug, but this could be fun for everyone. Cheers, Marti

    Just realized this is planned for Easter Sunday. Not a problem for me, but maybe we should change the date?

    I'm a Yes for now since I still don't know our Easter Sunday plans as a family. But, my calendar is open. :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
