Writing Circle

Baltimore Science Fiction Society

Due to virus control this meeting is very likely to be zoom meetings, Check www.bsfs.org for details. The Speculative Fiction Critique Circle meets every 2nd and 4th Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at BSFS HQ. We sit in a circle and people who have brought pieces for critique take turns reading their work aloud. We quietly mark the paper with any suggestions we have as they're reading. Then afterwards we spend time discussing language, plot, characters, pacing, all that good stuff. If you're going to present, bring 6 to 8 copies of a piece up to 2,500 words. For those with longer works, serialization is common. We're a friendly, but very focused group of writers who go in-depth to critique the works we bring in. We never get personal, but we will provide deep, honest feedback. We've had many stories workshopped here published professionally, and our goal is to keep that happening by making stories as strong and sharp as they can be. Of course, anyone who just wants to sit in, not present, and talk writing with us, is more than welcome to come by and do just that.
