Straight-up Critique Session

Online event

We critique only 4 pieces per meeting, generally. Reading is done ahead of our meeting so, if you have a piece to contribute, send it to the organizer between Sunday morning and Monday night before the meeting. Pieces must be 10 pages or less and in manuscript format (use this as a guide, https://www.shunn.net/format/story/) . All pieces must be sent to the organizer in docx format with comments turned on and editing off. Links rather than documents are fine if in that format. If you have questions email the organizer.

All pieces for critiquing and the meeting link will be sent to participants on the Tuesday before our Thursday meeting.

Agenda:
7 to 7:20 Announcements and information sharing

7:20 First critique begins

8:50 Closing remarks, suggestions and preparations for next meeting.

Note, if we are short a writer we may do writing exercises with the extra time or end early.

Ground rules: We are an inclusive accepting group and will not allow cruel, exploitative or manipulative activity. Critique must be honest, fair and constructive. All copyrights must be respected. Preferred pronouns may be provided at introduction.
