Come join fellow writers at Enigma!
We will be sitting in the back of the store.
Work to be critiqued is determined at preceding meetups. Up to 2 pieces are critiqued at a meeting, but 3 may be posted. Please read them all. Works to be critiqued are indicated in the comments section and should have the meetup date in the description. Files to read can be found in the files section under the more tab above.
*For those posting: In the upload description please indicate the date the work is for. Unless the piece is a chapter, please keep uploads to 15-20 pages in length, double-spaced, 11-12 size font. In the description as well as in your piece, please include your name, the title of your work, and a summary of the type of feedback you're looking for. Please number your pages and post by Friday at noon.
The group's agenda will be as follows:
7-7:15 - chat, introductions.
7:15-8:00 - set writing goals for upcoming week
8:00- 9:00 - provide feedback for chosen pieces
9:00 - 9:15 - chat, discuss group matters.
When critiquing a fellow writer's work, please begin by telling the writer what WORKED for you in the piece, what you liked, what you enjoyed and why. It is as important for writers to know what they're doing right as what they're doing wrong. After you share what you enjoyed, offer suggestions for what can be improved! Each person will have a max of 5 minutes to offer feedback. The writer will listen without responding, and will then have 5 minutes for a response to the group.
Enigma is a new bookstore. They hope more people will discover and support them. Take a look at their nice selection of books. Maybe there is something that will interest you!
See you there,
