Sunday Critique Session

This is a writer's critiquing session. What does that mean?

Those who want to attend should upload a piece of their fiction writing, maybe a short story, a chapter of a novel, or even an outline for their next book. The file needs to be uploaded under the More>Files tab. Ideally, your submission should be about 3,000 words, but please no more than 5,000 words. Because this is a group for writers seeking publication, your work should look professional. A guide is available here:

http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html

Submit works prior to the Wednesday before Sunday.

We will take turns reviewing everyone's submission, taking care to give the author honest, productive feedback. For a reference--pretend that you are the *nicest editor in the world* who is taking the time to explain what is holding a piece back from being published, taking the author's feelings into consideration. Scribophile's rules are a great structure to build from:

Casual observers or editors are always welcome.

Before you submit a work I recommend checking it with the "Pass" or "Fail" list on Strange Horizons:

Hope to see you there!

    I'm sorry, but I'm not able to make it today - my Sunday plans changed their time slots - I'm going to try to get in on the next one.

      I haven't read any of the submissions yet, so if I can get it to read by today. It's not too late for me to read another submission

      We meet every other Sunday, so if you can't make this one, we'll see you in two weeks! Feel free to stop by even if you haven't submitted. I usually read submissions on Saturday, but I keep our deadline on the Wednesday before in case weekend plans get in the way of critiquing time. Welcome to the group!
