Special Critique Session

Here's how it works: Email 15 pages in Manuscript Format (Double Spaced, Times New Roman or Courier, Name in the header along with page numbers) to: [masked]

Pieces for this meeting are due by 9/18/2013

Please make sure that you use Doc or RTF file when submitting, not Docx.

Please include the Genre of the piece and also if it's a short story, novella or novel.

It's important to get your pieces in early so that everyone has time to read and critique them. I'll email the stories out to everyone 7 days before the Meetup.

Each person will have 2 minutes to critique. There will be a timer to keep participants on time so that we can get to each piece in a timely manner. Please limit your comments accordingly and hit only the highlights so that we have enough time for everyone to be critiqued. They'll be getting your written comments, so there's no need to try and read all your comments at the table.

If you are submitting a piece of a novel, please include a short synopsis of what's gone on before so that people can focus their questions on the chapters submitted.

    We were fine, but the Rock Bottom Brewery moved us out of our usual room, and subjected us to astonishingly loud drunk. (Besides me, I mean.)

    Hello all! I'm a retiring Librarian who can finally settle down and become the (long winded) story teller of my dreams. I've written a couple of novels and am working on a new one, but I've never sought an editor and would like to meet with others who like to write.

    I have a small offering I'd like to submit for critique.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
