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 that you might not have considered.

Add to your list of storytelling techniques.

Enjoy opportunities to use others as a sounding board for new story ideas or challenges in current works.

 


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 6 pm every Tuesday 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.

    I have signed up to go, but it's always a maybe for me when it's this early in the evening. I always have the possibility of an emergency patient to deal with like last week.

    General question here since this will be my first Meetup, where do you gather in Books? I may not recognize everyone, having never attended before. I worry about wandering, being grabbed by all the books calling for my attention, and missing everyone entirely.

      We can't promise that you won't be grabbed by flavored teas or coffee. :)

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.
