Dear all,

Join us for our monthly "Reading & Critiquing" meeting, and share your creativity in an intimate and casual setting.

Format: Each participant has a total of 30 mins to read an excerpt from his/her writing and get comments from other people in the group.

What to bring: 1) An excerpt of your writing (ideally no more than 2000 words) to read to the group. You're welcome to also print out paper copies of your writing to give to other participants, so that we can read along and give you more detailed comments (4-5 copies should be more than enough). But it's not necessary. 2) Pen and paper to take notes. 3) A welcoming mind to imperfection, both of yours and of others. 4) Constructive suggestions (Don't just say, "This is awful". Say how you think it can be made better.)

Donation: Suggested donation $5 to cover the expense.

I'll prepare snacks and soft drinks. Looking forward to seeing you!

    I'm sorry to miss this without notification. I was asked to stay late at work and could not get out of it. By the time I found out, it was too late to change my RSVP.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
