“ I have attended two meetings and have found the writing critiques to be excellent. I understand that they have been meeting for almost five years. They have developed a process based on experience and listening to member feedback. They are providing an excellent and valuable meetup. I am impressed that the leader, Jane, organized it at the beginning and is still chairing meetups, once per month. I think the leadership team is excellent in their knowledge of writing and ability to conduct meetups. I am impressed with how Jane does one meetup per month, and the other two members of the leadership team, Glen and Phil, conduct the other meetup each month. ”

“ It has potential, some nice people, There is talent in the group, a caring and bright person at the helm. A solid beginning. I do wonder what the Wed/Sat breakdown will be...once critiques start, that's going to be an issue. More than 7 or so at any meeting armed with critiques is too many, and it's going to be hard to post things to be critiqued, too, since you can only do four or five at a meeting. Of course, only a handful of people might show in the future and make this a moot point. But if the core group continues or gets larger, the makeup of the two groups is probably going to need to be defined in some way. I really liked the people in the group...everyone seemed friendly, supportive, interested. ”
