IMPORTANT NOTE: due to Au Bon Pain changing its hours, we are shifting the meetings an hour earlier. We will now start at 2 pm and end at 4 (although we often finish a bit earlier).
Please prepare with the following format in mind: First everyone but the author will discuss the piece for about 15 minutes. Afterward everyone will be free to address the author, give direct feedback, ask the author questions, etc. for another 15 minutes. We prefer printed/handwritten feedback, but digital comments are fine if you don't have access to a printer (digital comments can be uploaded into the Submissions folder for that week so the writer can view them).
Sign up for critique here: http://bit.ly/2M5jLTZ. And submit your work here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1vnWmQ7BtmEQcU1ABY1BnZvMQRAnaxIWp?usp=sharing .
Files should be double-spaced and under 25 pages. Please make a note at the top of your piece explaining what it is (a short story, a novel excerpt, etc) and anything in particular you would like us to critique for. Remember to submit by Wednesday 5/22, but the earlier the better! This is to give people time to read and form responses to your work.
If you would like to review past submissions or catch up on previous chapters from a member's novel, the Drive folder for the group as a whole can be accessed here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B4tJOkWNZQLYMGR5NlZsTnlnc2M
Please also bring $2 to help pay for Meetup's monthly fee (Venmo or cash are fine!).
