Reading and Critiquing

  • Jul 22, 2014 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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!

      Would love to but I think meetup automatically gives my place to the first in the waiting line. Depending on how the organizer has it situated, it happens automatically. That, or the internet hates you shakirah. I don't know what you did to it, but I would apologize if I were you.
