Read & Critique, 2nd Monday of the Month

  • Jun 9, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

*** No outside food or drinks please! Support our venue from their menu. ***

Bring something to read or bring your curiosity and sharp wit and join your fellow writers as we share the beauty that is the written form of expression, and give our compatriots the tools they need to forge themselves into the next generation of Literary Giants.

Submissions: Please bring enough copies to share (look at RSVP list), up to around 1000 words (if RSVP count is below 6, more is OK - if we have 7-8, please consider bringing less to fit the 2 hour time).  If we have 9-12 submissions, we can split into two tables.

Submission Format: STANDARD MANUSCRIPT FORM for Fiction/Non-fiction; others as you like. Double-space to leave room for markup, single-sided (or double-sided to save paper), wide margins. We can write our comments all over it for you.

Reading: You can read your own submission or elect to have someone else read (like me)

Critiques: Each member in attendance can comment up to 2 minutes on what worked and what could use rework. We'll try to be nice if the reader asks us to, and harsh if the reader asks us to. The moderator might interject to keep critiques in line.

Join or login to comment.

    As I said in my RSVP I found feedback about my memoir most helpful and am going about reconstructing it chronologically. I'm looking for honest evaluation of the beginning of my novel. Plus may be able to enter into comments on other works more, now that I have better idea of the backbone of their stories.
