Critique Session

Please join us for a stimulating and congenial session of peer writing critique!  We will review submissions from fellow writers in the group and offer constructive feedback to the authors.  

We request that you read the works of writing ahead of time, mark them up, and come ready to give your comments.  The pieces to be reviewed will be announced in advance and available in the group's files area:

http://www.meetup.com/Westborough-Writers-Workshop/files/

This is also where to submit your works for review.  Up to three submissions will be selected for critique at each session.  Priority will be given to authors who did not present at the previous session, and after that, on a first-come-first served basis.  The deadline for submissions is 10 PM (ET) the Tuesday before the meeting; at that time the selection of pieces to be reviewed will be announced.

Please limit the length of submissions to 10 double-spaced pages.

I hope to see all of you there!

      So I guess we will review your submission the meeting after next. See you then; have fun in the mean time. I for one will miss your insights; but we'll just have to soldier on. ;-)

    Hello there, would just like to listen and learn. Not enough knowledge to critique.

      Don't be shy. I can't speak for anyone else, but I am no expert.

    Hello Team, I will be joining you all tomorrow but unfortunately I will not be able to critique any of your stuff. I just want to be their in person to encourage you all and learn from your work.

      Great! Yes folks, please do show up even if you don't have time to read in advance. I am bringing a couple of extra copies of my submission so that anyone who needs to can follow along.

    How is everyone? Since I'm a staunch member of the Westborough Writer's Workshop group, how can I facilitate submitting my rough copy of my novella on this page?

      Just go to the More tab and under it you will find a menu with a few things. Click on Files in that menu and then click Upload File on the page that comes up... I hope that helps. :)

      Devin - The best way is create a file containing a section of your work corresponding to 10 double-spaced pages in length (we review everything in reasonably-sized chunks). Then upload that file to the Files area of the Meetup page. If you can do this before 10 PM tonight, you can have my slot at this week's session (we need to give everyone enough time to print out and read the submissions). Otherwise, we can review it next time.

    I can't come Friday because we are having people over Saturday and it's the only time we can shop.

    I'll be away in Washington state for this one. Wish I could be there! Until next time, of course.
