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.

    I've just gotten back from a camping trip that was extended an extra day and all of my responsibilities are pilling up that I don't think I can properly critique this week. I am so sorry, I will have to come see everyone next week. I will still try to read and critique them this week and maybe I can hand them out next time. As long as my week doesn't do what my weekend did.

    So I've managed to ditch some of my other plans for the week...I've put myself back on the waitlist here. I'll try to read submissions in case I make the cut. ;-)

    Also, the way we usually work is that two members volunteer each week to present a chapter's length (roughly 11 pages double spaced) of what they've written, by uploading no later than Sunday evening so that it can be comfortably read and considered by Tuesday evening for comments. The writing is usually of first draft level or later, and sometimes the same material as presented after revisions made in the light of feedback from the first presentation. We usually start with a half-hour of socializing, followed by going around the room as each member makes his/her comments, ending with the author commenting on the comments. Usually the first author to upload is the first author whose work is discussed. .... You are more than welcome—encouraged— to come, listen, participate, and be comfortable with everything before volunteering for your first presentation.

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.
