Critique Meeting (West side/PM)

 

***Just a note to the regulars.  Please remember to RSVP so everyone else knows how many copies to bring.***

Looking for a little feedback on your writing? If so, join us for our biweekly critique group.

WHERE:

All meetups will be at the Barnes and Noble on Rainbow and Lakemead. You will find us in the cafe area giving people the stink-eye so they will bend to our will and donate their table to the cause.

WHEN:

We will meet at 5p to socialize and lament the traffic. Critiquing will begin at 5:30.

WHO:

Anyone who is willing to read other people's writing and offer constructive feedback on how it can improve. You do not need to bring a writing sample to attend. However, we all must follow the Be Nice rule, which states - BE NICE!!

If we have more than 25 people sign up, there will be a waiting list. If you RSVP and can't make it for any reason, that's not a problem at all. Please just CANCEL YOUR RSVP so we can open up that spot for the waiting list.

WHAT:

This is important. Well, so was the rest of it, but you get the idea.

If you are going to share your writing, you are welcomed to bring a submission from any genre. Please double space or 1.5 space your work so it is readable. The average person can read between 1,200-2,000 words in 10 minutes, so use that as your guide for length.

If your submission is not the beginning of a story, please include a small paragraph to help your reader find their feet when reading your submission.

Plan on bringing up to 10 copies of your work. Once we reach our 11th group member, we will divide into two groups and then three groups at 21, so you should never need more than 10 copies. You are welcome to check the RSVP count to determine how many copies you need or just bring 10 copies.

HOW:

What we do is spend 10 minutes all reading the same submission and then discuss it as a group. You do not need to read your submission aloud.

HOW LONG:

That depends on how many people are in each group, but it seems like we are usually heading out around 8p or so.

Okay. I think that's it. If you have any questions, fee free to email Melonie Purcell through this site. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

    It is my custom to eat food sometime between 5:15pm and 8pm. Am I to assume that this ritual will be interrupted on the nights of this meeting?

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.
