Crown Heights Writers Fiction Meetup
Every two weeks, writers bring works of fiction to be read aloud to the group. (approx. 500 words/5 minutes) After the brief reading, we will offer critique and questions. Your work doesn't have to be finalized--in fact, it's actually quite helpful to bring in a raw piece of fiction to gauge an audience's initial reaction. This structure allows writers to practice reading in front of a crowd as well as how to receive constructive feedback. All levels and genres are welcome, and you may attend if you don't have a piece of writing to share. Please be sure to buy a coffee or pastry to support our fantastic venue hosts!

What we're about

An author is described as, "the person who originated or gave existence to anything." So whether you are creating prose or poetry, whether it is typed neatly or scrawled across the wall in war paint, whether you are known as "a writer" or you write in secret joy and bohemian-blood-need in the dark of night, this group welcomes you. You will have a voice and ears to hear your words. Dust off that novel you've been working on for ten years and ready those poems that have been rolling around your brain. We will be honest and constructive and give you the truth, rain or shine, but always with a smile and a glass of wine...
