March 2014 Meetup

  • Mar 22, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • Hotel V Frederiksplein

Hi guys!

Time for another meetup. This time Sona has volunteered to submit, and we will be carrying on with new sections of a larger work that she has been working on.

She has previously submitted this story in parts twice before, so everyone this time will receive the first 2 submissions, as well as the latest completed part.

Therefore, because this is a larger work than we normally critique, we will only be focusing on Sona this month.

If we have more time, then we will have a writing exercise, so please come prepared!

PLEASE NOTE: this month it will be on Saturday afternoon, as the meeting room is already booked for Sunday.

Join or login to comment.

    Fantastic collective of ideas and critiques, both subjective and objective! I applaud anyone who can sit in the hot seat and have their work pored over by a dozen people. Well done, Sona!

    I am so sorry, but I won't be able to make it tomorrow. I am ashamed to have to do this at such short notice, but there were changes at work an I will return later from abroad. Hope to see you all soon :)

    Hey everyone, Sorry to say I am no longer going to be able to make this Saturday's meeting. Sona, thanks for sending me your work. I will take a look through and send my comments via email.

    All the best,

      Sorry to hear you won't be coming, James. And yes, I'd be very grateful for your comments!

    Hi All,
    Amanda's been very busy, so I'm sending through the first part of my submission directly. It's kind of long, so thought I'd get it to you asap, especially for those who haven't seen it before. But I don't have the following email addresses: Naomi, Alicja, Jonas, Grant, Veerle. Could you please send me your email address so I can forward it to you as well?
    Many thanks, and looking forward to seeing y'all on Saturday!

      hi sorry for the late reply. My email address is [masked]

      March 11, 2014

    • Sona

      Thanks, sending it to you now. Regarding the feedback: it's the usual format, i.e. everyone comments on what they liked and what they didn't (and why), and if possible on how it could be improved.

    Hi Amanda, and others,

    I would love to attend on the 22nd. 2 questions:
    - What time will we be finished? (I need to arrange a babysitter)
    - Where I can find Sona's material and what is expected of me? Is there a specific aspect to her writing/story that Sona wishes to receive feedback on?

    Looking forward to the 22nd!

      Hi Veerle! It usually takes around 2 hours, so I expect we will be done around 5 pm. Then some people stick around to chat and have a drink. If you can send me a message so that I have your email address, I will be sending Sona's submission around shortly! Thanks!

      [masked] is faster than sending a message on Meetup!
