BAWL Critique Group Meeting

Everyone is welcome.

We critique all genres: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, essay, memoir, and recently, a screen play. This is an especially good group if you haven't been to a critique group before. Visitors are always welcome.

Discussing your work and your plans as an author is what we are about. Some of our members write in more than one genre, but all of us are enthusiastic and as eager to hear new work as to be heard by others. Another group member will be glad to read your writing sample if you wish. It's entirely up to you.

If you want to share your work, bring copies (8-12) so each person in the group can share their ideas and suggestions orally and write notes on the copy they return to you. Please limit your writing sample to 500 words (or less), size 12 or 14 font, and double-spaced to leave room for comments.

Poets are limited.The format of the poems is not restricted to one format. We know format is often a significant part of the message. Write it the way you want.

If we do not have enough time to to review everyone's work, those members who have to wait will be first on the agenda at our next meeting. We try to wrap up by 9 p.m., but sometimes go to 9:30 p.m.

We love what we do and want to share it with YOU. (Thank goodness, I'm not a poet.)
