Writers' Workshop

We've done the planning, we've done the writing - or are in the process of writing! - now let's workshop our writing. If you have something you'd like feedback on, bring it to the group. The emphasis will be on honest, constructive criticism. We all have an inner critic. We don't need external ones reflecting that inner negativity! I'll provide a list of narrative elements to keep in mind when critiquing as a guide. So if something doesn't work and you want some feedback, or if you think you've nailed it and want to share, this could be the group for you! The format will depend on numbers, so it will be very important to monitor your RSVP's. EG. if there are 10 people who each have 2-3 pages to workshop, then we can probably read those on the day and give feedback. Any more than that and we might have to email beforehand and just do the feedback on the day. So you can see how not turning up if you've rsvp'd 'yes' will impact on the group. With the first session in February we'll all bring 3 pages along for workshopping and we'll take it from there. Hope you can join us!

    Was able to make 24th but can't make 3rd March... Yes I hate my job. I was really looking forward to this too.

    Hi everyone - please change your rsvp if you cannot make the new date! Just a reminder that we depend on the kindness of The Vineyard for the space, so the deal is we buy lunch there on the day.

      Hi Pip, Didn't realise this event would run through lunchtime. Only planned on a 2-3 hour gathering - so didn't think it would involve lunch. Happy to buy coffee. Can you please provide more details on timings. I have a feeling now that this meetup is only for those who participated in the novel writing workshops run through the latter part of last year. I'm writing non-fiction at the moment, so not sure this meetup is still for me. Please let us know. Thanks.

    Hi Emma - more than welcome! BTW, what is an extension english course?

    January 17, 2013

    • emma b.

      Thankyou, I am a student so I'm studying 3 units of english, the extension course has to do with critical analysis' of texts and comparative studies of literature so i have a lot of work due that doesn't particularly allow me the opportunity to write for leisure. But i would love to come and join in with you all, i think id get a lot out of it!

    HiI'm a student doing an extension english course. Im not working on anything in particular as I'm consumed with english texts and critical analysis' of texts. I was curious as to whether i would be welcome to observe, listen and share thoughts and minor works?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
