Meet and Critique XIII

Come and join us for our thirteenth meeting of insightful critique, great storytelling, and witty repartee in the Union City Library's Meeting Room! Don't shy away if you're superstitious - the number thirteen is very auspicious in Chinese gambling. Let this be your literary lucky day!

Submissions for this meeting are closed. Submissions will be scheduled for future meetings on a first-come-first-come basis. Email your submission to Beth. Please limit submissions to no more than 7000 words. That's an average chapter or about 20 pages of screenplay. If you're in doubt as to whether the length is a problem, let me know and we'll work something out. If you are submitting an excerpt from a longer work (e.g. Chapter 4 or Book 2, Chapter 1), include a list of Dramatis Personae and a synopsis. These should be detailed enough that someone new to the work will have all the information they need. Submitting is $5 to defray website expenses.

    Found a writer's conference scheduled for next July that I think sounds pretty good. It's up in Kent Washington. If anyone else is interested here is a link: http://cascadewriters.com/2014-workshop/

      when you know the logistics and cost of the train, let me know. Perhaps I'll join you on the train. That'd be interesting.

    Hi! I'm new to the group, so I missed the submission this meeting. This would be my first, but I wanted to make sure it was okay to attend if I didn't submit anything yet. It sounds like a great group!
