"Regularly-sche­duled" 2nd Sat.-of-the-month writers' critique

*** Please note the new "summer hours" for the Saturday meetup! We'll meeting from 9AM-11PM, starting in June! ***

We're meeting at the 208 Garfield cafe/pub/wine bar (at Garfield Books), just off Pacific Ave. in the Parkland neighborhood. From I-5, take exit 127 to Hwy 512, then exit at Pacific Ave. Take a right at the top of the off-ramp. You can take a right turn onto Garfield St. - the Farelli's pizza on the corner is a good landmark - or take the next right to park in the lot.

Current members with work for critique should post it to the wiki no later than Wednesday evening (please try to limit submissions to around 10 pages, Times New Roman 12 pt. double-spaced. This is to help reduce the strain on fellow members' eyeballs & their pocketbooks).

*** Re: extra copies. If you are a writer with work for critique, bringing a few extra copies is appreciated (particularly by 1st-timers in attendance)... but not required. If you are a new writer or a regular who has not submitted work, we ask that you bring a few pages of a work-in-progress. This is primarily a motivational tool - but we may ask you to trade pages with another member of the group for their impressions & feedback, if time permits.

New members: We welcome new members! Regularly scheduled meetings are the 2nd Sat. of each month, from 9 a.m. - 11a.m., with an alternate meeting the last Saturday of each month, from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. We may have other meetings for special topics throughout the month. Read through our FAQ (in the "Files" area of our Meet-Up site), then drop in for a meeting to check us out!

    I am so sorry I was not able to make it. A very sudden unexpected family tragedy struck this week and I've been out of it. If you had a chance to critique Philosophers and Flaneurs, I would love the feedback. My email is [masked]. If not, thanks anyway for reading and I'll see you next month.

    I didn't receive any submissions to review so I don't really have anything to contribute tomorrow....guess I'll wait until the end of the month meeting.

    Hi, everyone. So I RSVPed and uploaded my short short & am sorry to say at the last minute that I will not be able to make it tomorrow after all. I did, however, read everyone's work and will try to send you my comments. If anyone read & commented on my story, I'm sorry I won't be there, but if you have time and want to send me your comments I'd greatly appreciate it. :-)

    Probably should have asked this sooner but where do you post chapters for Saturday feedback?
