February Wilmington Writers Group meeting - Critique

February Wilmington Writers Group - Program to be announced
Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - 7 pm

The FEBRUARY Wilmington Writers Group program will be announced at a later date.

Our meeting place is Lone Star Steakhouse in north Wilmington, near the Concord Mall on Rt 202. The address is 307 Rocky Run Parkway, Wilmington, DE. The meeting officially starts at 7:00 pm but many of us come early (around 6:30 pm) to eat and socialize a bit - but you can order your meal at any time during the meeting. They are seating us in an area which should be good for creating a closeness and offer us some seclusion.

Just a reminder that you can order a scrumptious meal at Lone Star Steakhouse off their extensive menu. We don't get charged for the great room, but The Lone Star Steakhouse does have the expectation that attendees will order a meal. It is a fair expectation and the meals are reasonably priced. IF you have special dietary needs, the manager has agreed to create some vegetarian friendly meals with some advance notice. If you would like this, please call and make arrangements at least a day in advance.

Mark your calendar for every second Tuesday of the month. Feel free to tell others and bring a friend or two.

This is a membership group. After you attend and try us out, we ask that if you find the group of value and want to continue, you help with the costs of running the group. The costs of the group include the fee we pay for meetup, the web site hosting and buying meals for guest speakers, handouts, fliers, etc. YOUR FIRST MEETING IS FREE AND A TRIAL TO SEE IF YOU FIND IT A FIT!

This is a sister group of the Main Line Writers Group, held the third Wednesday of the month in King of Prussia. you can check it out and see what people think of it! www.meetup.com/Main-Line-Writers

We are all looking forward to seeing you!

    Another great meeting led by Gary. Critique session insightful and informative. Thanks to group two for an excellent session. Really looking forward to next one. Too bad the venue can't absorb the sound so we can hear each other better. In spite of that, I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I'm so glad Gary started this group. I'm writing more than ever because of it.

    This was an awesome workshop! I was nervous about getting and giving constructive critique, but feel I received relevant and applicable points to consider, not simply subjective opinion. It was great to get that from people who sound and seem to truly know their stuff. To the only male in group 3 ( forgive my memory lapse with names), I meant to tell you also that you have a great voice for narrative, in addition to the positives we all shared about your writing. Audiobooks worthy. The only reason I don't rate 5 stars was because I found the noise generated from several, animated critique groups was distracting and I think detracted from each speaker being fully received. Something I'm confident will be refined in subsequent meetings
    , and does not deter me from joining to further experience the huge benefits of this group. Big thanks to the organizers and all who attended. It was a rich experience for me.

      There are very few places in Wilmington that offer flexible space...we already moved from a shared restaurant room so we know that doesn't work. Hang tight, we'll try to make adjustments for improvement. So glad you found it valuable. We look forward to your continued participation.

    I'll be there, assuming my flight from Arizona arrives on time. I may also have something to critique, since I do write on planes.

    Can't make this meeting. I am traveling away from PA/DE that day. Hoping your meeting dates get changed to Mondays. Tuesdays are going to be iffy for me all year. Same issue (different reason) for a friend who was going to join me. . . . . . Mike

    Hello! I am new to the group. Also, I have never been a part of any writer's group....should I bring something I wrote and are we expected to read what we wrote? Can we just listen? Thank you very much.

    February 2, 2014

    • Gary Z.

      You can bring a piece that is up to five pages double spaced for critique or you can just work on others' pieces...your choic.

    • Jeana S.

      Thank you!
