• Please send a writing sample to Dave before you become a member and absolutely before you RSVP for your first meeting. Message me and I will give you my email address.

Meet friends and hear how your potential readership reacts to your work. This group is dedicated to reaching and supporting creative (fiction) writers of all stripes in the Louisville area.  New members must attend at least 1 meeting as a critiquer before bringing writing--not a big requirement, really.  It's a good idea to check us out first anyway. Though we try to be as open as possible there are a few genres that are not suitable: children's lit., non-fiction, screenplays and poetry. We need to manage who presents material to ensure enough time to discuss, so we distribute presenters as evenly as we can between the small groups.  Please help us create a strong environment of support and good feedback even when you don't have writing to present. The maximum word limit is 3,000 words or 15 mins of presenting whiceer comes first. See sign up list to judge how many copies to bring. For New member guidelines go on this site to: Discussions> Message Board>For New and Prospective Members.

  • Please message Dave for his email address and then send a writing sample no more than 3,000 words.
