This group is for those who are serious about writing and publishing short stories. We will submit up to 2,000 words at a time into a shared drop-box, then participants can verbally report at the next meeting or print out a paragraph or two and hand them to the author. The critiques should focus on the elements of story-telling (characters, settings, plot arc, etc.) rather than grammar and spelling. Those who do not have basic grammar skills probably won't feel comfortable in this group. A secondary reason for this meetup is to have a place to discuss ideas and concepts in an environment of like-minded people.
I'm basing this group on a successful, long-term group in Austin (The Slug Tribe), who has launched the carreers of many of its members over the years, as they help refine stories for the marketplace, or like me navigate the maze of sefl-publishing. I have five anthologies out there, and nearing completion of a sixth.
