    I second that, and thank you all for the candid but courteous opinions. Alternative perspectives are exactly what I'm looking for, even if don't agree with everything; the conflict is very constructive.
    You'll see the impact of your critiques in the writing the next time I have a chance to share.

    Patty - Why don't you put links to several of the poems you would most like people to read into a document and post that? Or just post a list to this discussion. I think that would be a good thing to go over on Friday.

    It looks like of the folks who have posted un-reviewed material, you, Marcia, Holly, and myself are attending.

    Ostral - If you want to go this time, please let us know (and RSVP) so we know what to critique for Friday. You have priority over me.

      Good idea, Gustav. I posted the direct links to 3 poems. My idea is to share a collection of poetry about people and places that most readers can identify with.

    Since we seem to be light on material this session, I have uploaded another chapter of my novel
    (http://files.meetup.com/11894102/Faulkner%27s%20Ghost%20Critique%20-%20Just%20a%20Touch%20-%2021-Feb-2014.pdf). If anyone else wants to share something, I will gladly cede the floor, since I went last time and the time before that.

    Why don't you try submitting an excerpt of your work and see how it goes?

    I am still not sure that this group will be one that will be beneficial to me.
