Writers workshop

  • Mar 19, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for a weekly get together of sometimes frank and hopefully always constructive criticism of your literary work. There is no restriction on the type of genre and only a few rules:

1. Bring up to 6 double spaced typed pages of your work for reading. Additional copies would be helpful in order to allow others in the group to follow along.

2. The author is not allowed to speak while feedback is being provided.

3. The same piece should not be reread at a future workshop.

We will meet in Info Commons Meeting Room 7 of the Central Library on March 19th. A floor plan link is available at http://www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/sites/default/files/files/pdf/central/floorplan.pdf.

More information about the Brooklyn Central Library, including available public transportation options, can be found at http://www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/locations/central.

Hope to see all of you there.

Danny

    I have decided to attend the workshop tomorrow. I will be leaving on Wednesday for three weeks and that is way too long, for me, to be away from the group.

    Hi I am glad to say that the story I read in one of the meet ups has been accepted by Million Stories to be published in their Summer updates. Thanks for all the great feedback. I am new to publishing and so would like to know what you all think of Millionstories.net. Is it widely read? Thanks again!

      Diya, I don't recall where I first heard about OMS but it was likely from Duotrope.com which lists venues for submission. I looked over their site, read some of their stories and thought it would be a good match for mine. I know little about their reputation in the lit world. All my previous pubs were humor and I wanted a pub in lit fic, and this was my first. I think this might have been listed in Duotrope as having a high acceptance rate compared to the A-list lit mags like Granta etc.
