Writer's Guild Critique Prompt: Patriotism

Greetings fellow writers!

July's prompt is brought to you in a timely manner by Doug. It is: Patriotism. Feel free to write a little something about this prompt, or whatever else may come to mind in next month's meetings. As always, please submit your work under the "Files" tab found in the "More" tab a week before the meeting (6/29).

Also, be sure to look over other people's work carefully so we can have a meaningful discussion at the meetup. Usually, the only works that are read aloud at the actual meeting are poems. However, many of the submissions are short stories or chapters, so be sure to check the files tab for submissions the week before the meetup.

Please let me know ASAP if this date/time isn't going to work for you. If enough people aren't going to be able to make it (since it's vaguely close to a holiday, people might be taking a long weekend vacation), we'll change the date. Just post a comment as early as you can so we can figure it out early.

Also, I've suggested meeting at Mead's Corner again. This is because the last couple of meetings have had a smaller turnout; it's pretty reasonable to fit up to five in the cafe. The library costs $15 to reserve, and we haven't had a large turnout since we've been doing it. If we have enough people RSVP, I may try to reserve a room at the Rockwell Library. Again, just RSVP as soon as you can so I can make changes early.

I look forward to seeing everyone again!

    This was a great meetup. I had a wonderful time talking with Doug about his revision, and I hope to see Act II next month! It was also good to meet Sabrina--I look forward to your character study!

    I am so sorry I missed yesterday's meeting. I had to cancel because, as a church organist, I was asked to sub for a friend who was out of town. I hope I can make August...unless it's on the same Saturday when I'm due to play for a wedding :-P Hope it was a great meeting yesterday.

    Hi everyone! I'm very excited to see so many new people attending the next week's meetup! If you want to have something critiqued, please remember to submit it today so that everyone can look at it and have some constructive criticism for the meeting. If you don't want/have time to submit anything, that's okay, but please look at the Files tab for uploaded pieces and be ready to give some feedback at the meeting!

    Also, there's quite a few of us, so I'll try to get there early and grab a table at Mead's Corner. If you're there early, please do the same.

    I look forward to reading this week's entries, hearing some feedback on my story, and hearing about our new writers.

    See you all in a week!
