Saturday 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 have nothing to read so I will bow out to let someone else into the room.

    Lately even my best efforts at meeting up with this group have not been good enough. My husband has been in unrelenting pain since Christmas Day, and he will be undergoing surgery this Tuesday, 3/18. Needless to say, his inability to stand, walk and lie down comfortably have kept me busy keeping the home fires burning. Hope to meet up for my first visit with you some time in the near future. Please don't give up on me!

      That sounds rough. Best wishes to you and your husband for the surgery.

      Robert and Nicole, thanks for your good wishes. All will be well, I'm sure.
