Astoria Sunday Meetup @ Uncle George's

Come join your fellow writers at Uncle George's Tavern!

We will be sitting in a nook towards the back, just ask the host for the "writer's group" or "Alex's table".

This will be our 3rd Sunday meeting.

If you would like to have your work critiqued during this meeting, please write "SUNDAY," followed by your name and the title of your work in the uploads. Each person at the meeting should read the SUNDAY works before the meeting, and should bring them in on paper or in digital form so that we can all edit the works together.

The group's agenda will be as follows:

3-3:15 - chill, chat, order food.

3:15-4:45 - critique works

4:45 - 5:00 - chill, chat, pay the bill

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!

See you there,

Yours most sincerely,

Alex

      Seriously, looking forward to reading it. But maybe not Katty's. Okay — I'm looking forward to reading Katty's, too. Such a hassle being a nice guy sometimes.

      We will be as ruthless and pitiless as humanly possible in our critique, Katty, descending into wholly unwarranted sniping if at all possible. See you Sunday.
