We are a group of writers who share works-in-progress for feedback and help with technique, encouragement and suggestions for edits and changes. 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. We write fiction, please no: non-fiction, memoirs, Children's, YA, screenplays, or poetry.
We ask you attend one meeting before you share your writing.
$20 yearly fee due by your 2nd meeting if you are new. Fees offset Meetup fees.
Remember to change your RSVP status if you can't attend.
When there's a waiting list the system will automatically move you to 'attending' and email you when someone changes their RSVP.
If you no-show for a meeting you will need to rejoin as a member and skip the next meeting.
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. See sign up list to judge how many copies to bring. I need to keep membership below fifty and I'm actually shooting for around 40 so if I need to drop people who don't attend.
Please message Dave for his email address and then send a writing sample no more than 3,000 words of your work-in-progress fiction.
