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.

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.

Please be courteous to your fellow members. Try to arrive on time. If you are not present at 11 o'clock you may not get to read.

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, Jason & Martha

    Great meetup today! A small group of great talent! Enough time to really go in depth into issues. I truly appreciate every comment made regarding my work; it is steadily better for all your inputs.

    The best critiques of writing are face to face. To do so backhandedly is just really poor taste

      Hey Aria, I'm not sure how you took Marc's comment... It was meant to be a joke, as in humor. I am certain about that. I know also that it was neither a critique of anyone's writing, nor aimed at any person in particular.

    If I use a left slanted font, will that improve my chances of getting picked up by the so called liberal press? Does this improve my chances of an interview on NPR?

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.
