I attended on Saturday and enjoyed myself immensely. The three critique pieces were very well written.

What's the procedure for accessing work that has been submitted for review? And for submitting. Thanks!
I'd like to ask some questions about how the group works. I know it's monthly and starts at 2pm. Is there an ending time? I saw something about submissions. How does that work. I was unable to make this months group but I do plan to meet with everyone in August.
I look forward to reading the next submissions so I can more fully participate, and I also hope to submit something of mine soon.
A very hot Philadelphia today brought a smaller group than usual, 24 with 6 new people. We discussed writers' motivations in craft and had 3 critiques.

I stopped writing about 2 or 3 years ago and would really love to get back to my memoir. This group looks pretty professional and I don't know if I am appropriate.

I will be the first to tell you that a lot of the members are amateurs with few, if any, publishing credits and the writing level of the group is quite wide: Beginners to Professionals. Many members are working on a memoir just like you. Please feel welcome to join.
It's been aaaages!
I'm so sorry, but I've had a relapse of an allergic reaction to some fudge I ate on Weds despite the meds I'm on. Was looking forward to your reviews.
sorry I can not make this meet-up after all today but please keep me informed of the next one.
will not be there, airport pickup
I just finished my book and look forward to being there.
Hopefully the holiday won't steal away from our numbers too much!
Looking forward to meeting you all tomorrow.

I've loved writing ever since I could form words on paper. I don't find the time very often.

There may be some subgroups that meet other days. If no one answers here, ask around at the next meeting.

EVERYONE! If you've submitted a story and received a lot of criticism about your basic writing skills, especially punctuation and sentence structure, or if you lack confidence in your composition skills or you're just out of practice, we strongly recommend either taking a refresher course in *English grammar* or finding a book or website on the subject. One example is "English Grammar For Dummies," from the Dummies.com website.__By taking the time to do this, you will avoid the kind of critiques that could sap your writing confidence and it shows respect for the time your fellow Meetup Group members volunteer to put into seriously reviewing your work.__Let's be there for each other! :-)
