Pensacola Weekly Writing and Critique Group

Looking to get some fresh eyes and detailed feedback on your work? A critique group can help you to:
* Gain new perspective on your work from members of various backgrounds.
* Learn to talk about your writing and yourself in front of others.
* Explore different angles which you might not have considered.
*Add to your list of storytelling techniques.
Guidelines:
* We promote a professional, structured, and respectful environment that is both honest and constructive.
* All types of writing are welcome! Many of our members are also involved in the NWFLWG and include writers of literary fiction, fantasy/sci-fi, non-fiction, autobiographies, poetry, screenplays, and more.
* Our group includes all experience levels, from published authors to newcomers putting their first ideas to paper.
* We read all lengths of manuscripts, from short stories to full-length novels.
Meeting Schedule:
* We meet at 6pm every Wednesday at Books-a-Million (6235 North Davis Highway, Pensacola, FL 32504)
* Weekly submissions are limited to around 15 double-spaced pages or 3000 words. Of course, don't just cut off mid-sentence. If you have to go over a little bit to finish a chapter or scene, that's perfectly fine.
* Visit our Facebook Group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/162266207194431/

    So sorry about the late response; Nick I will message you my email and you can send me yours.
    Kimberly, yes, I believe it is similar. We operate on a basis of honest, yet kind critique. In other words, just saying you don't like something doesn't fly. We explain our feelings and try to encourage the writers. If you would simply like to come and view the process, we are certainly open to that. :)

    I critique other writers' work on Scribophile, but I've never given
    feedback to someone in person. Is the process similar? Sharing thoughts about what was effective, questions, etc, unless a specific type of feedback is requested?

    It was great to meet up with Coral and Lynette again after so long away. I'm sorry I couldn't stay long enough to share my thoughts on Coral's piece. It was both engaging and evocative.

    Tracey, the only email address I have for you is an AOL one. There should be room for you to submit, as I have the only other submission out.

    Are we still reading submissions prior to the meeting? If so, please use my gmail address. Also, I have something to submit, if there is room. I just need to know page/word limits. Thanks! I'm looking forward to it.
