Critique Meeting

Hi Everyone, please join us for our weekly critique meeting. We are holding this every Saturday afternoon at Vie de Boheme Winery (which is open to all ages). They have a great back room that can be closed off from the rest of the restaurant so it's an ideal place for reading aloud.

We are using a read-aloud format. If you wish to have your work critiqued, please bring a short piece or chapter (about 2-3 double-spaced pages) to read out loud to the group. It can be any genre, including non-fiction or poetry, but we do ask that the material be PG-13 as we are in a public place and don't put age restrictions on our writers. You don't have to read - you can show up to listen and critique or just listen. We don't have set time limits on critiques - all we ask is that you be mindful of how many readers are reading after you so that everyone gets a chance to read. We don't charge for the meetings, but we do ask that everyone buy something to support the venue so they let us come back. :)

Please RSVP so we have an accurate count to give the restaurant.

    I laid down for a nap, and just woke up. I guess I was tired.

    I'm planning on bringing a few versions of my query letter for my first novel, which I may hand out as opposed to reading(if this is okay). I'd love to see which version makes you all want to buy the book most, because hopefully a prospective agent-publisher will agree.

    Have enjoyed first two meetings. Feedback was helpful in evaluating my own evaluation. Will be in Spokane this coming weekend.
