    I've never attended a meetup with the group. May I ask what to expect?

      Justin, The seminar is a one-time requirement to join the critique group. We have a particular way of approaching novel writing so you'll need to attend the seminar once to become a member of the meetup. Email me if you have more questions. -Greg

      I'm not sure II'm comfortable with the format. It's also a long drive for the uncertainty. At this point, I think I'm going to bow out entirely. Thank you for your consideration.

    Hi Greg:

    I am sorry, but I will not be able to attend today's workshop that I was so looking forward to. My son has a basketball game and that has to take precedence. I did; however, sign up for the March 1st workshop and look forward to meeting everyone and learning from you then. I apologize for the late notice. Thank you, Gina

    • Greg S.

      Gina, it's no problem. We'll see you next week!

      February 22, 2014

  • Jackie H.

    Thank you, Greg. I am really excited and ready to learn.
