We begin with a 30 minute mini-lesson on writing and then every member brings about 1000 words (5 handwritten pages) to read aloud for critique.
We do not make or share copies of our written works; we have discovered that by hearing the story aloud, we grasp it more readily and are better able to help the writer with our comments on the language of the piece, rather than focusing in on the grammar and mechanics of the document.
We have been together since 2004 and several of us are published - either traditional, self, small press, blog, newspapers, or not at all. Come knowing what you want out of the group, and chances are - you will find it!
We have a wide range of ages and are extremely varied in our personal beliefs, writing skills and choices of genre. Please keep your writings acceptable to most crowds (no erotica, etc.) We have a lower age limit (ninth grade in high school).
We are guests of Eaglebrooke. They have posted that no motorcycles are allowed in the housing area. If this is a problem, email me and I will make arrangements to meet you at the gate.
I look forward to meeting you!
