Critique Meeting : 1500 words or less

This is a circle style critique meeting. Each author will receive approximately 15-20 minutes to have their work read and critiqued. Due to the ambient noise, it is a silent reading followed by a discussion. Please bring printed copies of your work, one for each attendee. Printing 8 copies would cover most situations so that each person can have a copy to read. Double spaced is preferable as it allows notes to be written more easily. Subject matter is at the author's discretion. If you are not there at the start of the meeting, you may not have a chance to have your work critiqued.

You are welcome to join us whether you'd like to have your work read and critiqued or just read other's work and offer feedback or if you would like help from the group for planning/research purposes.

When there are more than 8 people RSVPing for the meeting we will be holding two meetings at the same time.

At the beginning of each meeting, we will randomly split into two groups. This will be done by pulling colored stones out of a bag at 7 o'clock. Once we split into the two groups, the meetings will continue in the usual format. If you are not present at 7 o'clock you may not get to read.

Please be courteous to your fellow members. Try to arrive on time. If the group grows to more than 8 people after the meeting starts, we would then need to interrupt the meeting to break into groups.

If you have any questions regarding the meeting, No Show Policy or location and parking for the meeting, please contact the organizers.

Look forward to seeing you all there!

Your organizers, Colt, Terry, Cliff & Martha

    I'm sorry I missed the last meeting! Believe it or not I couldn't find the restaurant. I went to the Town Center Mall, was on time, but couldn't find the place. I'll give it another shot soon as I can. Hopefully, I'll get to meet y'all on friday. CF

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
