The Craft of Writing

  • September 17, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • OFFICE BUILDING

Welcome Writers,

The Craft of Writing is designed for all levels of writers and genres.  Although the group is serious about writing, we enjoy lots of laughter.

Bring three or four pages, double-spaced, to read.  Please try not to speed-read.  You deserve quality feedback.

There is a list of potential attendees.  We split into two smaller group, when necessary, to allow ample time for each reader.

Please bring enough copies for everyone, so we can note our remarks individually.  Each reader has 15 minutes to read and have his or her work critiqued.  Courtesy is expected when reviewing and should follow this pattern:  positive, critique/suggestions, positive

Upon conclusion of the meeting, each attendee should feel uplifted, inspired to write, and eager to return.

Readers:  Before leaving the meeting, check the number of copies returned.

    Sorry I was a no-show due to work also. I'd been looking forward to this for a month. From the comments, sound like another high caliber meeting. See you next time.

    We split the group so each of the 10 readers could have a more comprehensive critique. All the works presented were well done.

    Sorry!

    I will be unable to attend tonight. I am up to my eyeballs in work. Too bad we can't record the meetings for those who have to miss them.

      Glad, but not really, that I wasn't the only one stuck at the office slaving away rather than being with other writers & honing my craft :(

      You both are creative and wonderful writers whose brains are always in writing mode no matter what goes on at work. Hope to see you at the next Craft meeting.

    This is one of the best groups I have attended. And my reading buddies had great stories.

    This was my first writer's meetup and I'm still humming with the excitement of it. The big group split in half since there were ten readers. Our bunch of six was so fine and brilliant that I can't really believe it! Every person a pro, each with great tweaking suggestions. First time I've ever had a face to face with other seasoned writers generous enough to listen and think. Thank you, Sherry and Rose Marie!
