This is a workshop for a group of Long Island fiction writers, who get together once-a-month to critique each others work. Essentially, we discuss what we like about a piece, and what we think can be improved. The emphasis is on nurture: how one writer can help another via thoughtful comments and suggestions. Everyone's manuscripts (2,500 words max) are traded via email one week prior to the meeting, then printed out and "marked up" with comments and suggestions. If you're a fiction writer on Long Island looking for a close, ongoing appraisal of your work, you'll probably get a kick out of this meeting. Every genre of novel and short story writing is welcome. The meetings are evey fourth Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m at Panera Bread (Bakery and Cafe) (5191 Sunrise Highway, Bohemia, NY 11716, (631) 589-1988). You'll find Panera on the east end of the K-Mart Shopping Plaza, across from Old Navy.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
