Davis Writer's Salon Meetup

  • Jul 22, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Thank you for joining Davis Writers Salon. Each week, we pick two submissions to read for the following week. Please come to the meetup prepared, having read the two submissions from our writers. These are typically 10 pages, double-spaced. You can find these under the "Files" link under the "More" tab. Make sure to be logged in to see the most recent (usually the top two). Be prepared to offer both positive feedback and constructive criticism.

Join or login to comment.

    Hi guys. I'm totally wiped out! Need to just sit down and not think. Please forgive the late cancel. The man will be there though! Forgive please!

      Regenerate, Shirley! We will miss you!

    Howdy folks, I'm dropping out this week because I've got some additional commitments this week and I'm under the wire trying to finish the current iteration of my current novel. I'll still be at the Wednesday write-in, though, as I'm sure I will be sick of my work room by then. Sorry for the late notice, but looks like there's a wait list! Have a great meeting!

      If I get a chance, I'll comment and email! Really sorry if I don't manage it, but I promise to try.

      Thanks, Stephanie! I appreciate the offer...and I totally understand if you can't. It's pretty rough because I had to rewrite it Sunday *shakes fist at computer* but you know I appreciate your thoughtful comments.

      If you do, make sure it is the version currently up, it says v3. Thanks! :-)

    Sorry to be a bother, but I still haven't received an email with the address of the meeting location. I'm really hoping to make it tonight, so if anyone would be willing to email me with that info, it'd be much appreciated. Thanks!

      I haven't received mine yet either, so you haven't been left out. Sometimes it takes a bit.

    Hello, everyone! I'm a newbie with a question: How strict is this group about wait-list policies? My old writing group was quite relaxed (if only 2 or 3 were waiting, they were welcome to come). Does this group have similar policies? Thanks so much for taking the time to read/answer this! Much appreciated. :)

    • Cindy K.

      Yes, I send the address to the waitlist too

      Thanks for the storage advice. I'm going to be serious about backing up from now on. This whole experience was exactly zero fun.

      July 20, 2014

  • Christine M.

    Sorry my story is late. I lost it earlier this week (back up your files!) and am pulling something together last minute...it's been a busy week and I didn't budget time for this. It'll be up later this evening!

    2 · July 20, 2014

    • Christine M.

      Thanks for the support, John. I hope you are right!

      July 20, 2014

    • Christine M.

      Okay, I've reread it (for only the third time) and uploaded a revision. It clearly needs serious work. This obviously is a rough work in progress. :-)

    Matt Smiley,
    I will be coming this Tuesday. Next Tuesday, I will be down in San Diego for a week long vacation. I will be there afterwards.

    Re Megan's note: I have a recently completed story ready. I am presently scheduled tentatively for July 29. I could submit now for July 22, taking Megan's slot, unless someone prefers to go ahead.

    • John M.

      Go for it David.

    So about me submitting this week......can postpone to the 5th? I think there was someone else who wanted to go. I COMPLETELY forgot I'm going out of town for the next two weeks. I should've checked my calendar before speaking. My apologies!

    July 16, 2014

    • John M.

      I can go in a pinch but if someone else is ready then by all means go this week.
