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.

    Great job! Where do you have it printed? What is your cost? I heard Powells does book printing.

      Powell's is good for getting a proof made for personal reasons, but they charge as much per book (or more) than what you can reasonably retail it for, so it's not good for printing off a batch to sell.

    Thanks everyone for your help with my Baked Alaska piece. I value your thoughts and comments very much and have decided to start anew.
    You are a great group!

    Thank you everyone. I changed one of the Mothers to Earth now more balanced. I also sent my manuscript to the printers. CHWG has been a great help. Some of the editorial changes I have made have been a direct result of insights from members who purport to know nothing about Poetry. Delicious.

    Unfortunately I've run into a few issues with the internet and printer, so I will not be able to attend this afternoon. I apologize. I will see you all next week.
