Cypress Otherworldly Writers Critique Group Monthly Meeting
This group caters primarily to aspiring writers in the Science Fiction, Fantasy & Paranormal genres to provide a regular opportunity to receive constructive feedback on their writing in a supportive and relaxed atmosphere. From short stories to full-length novels, rank beginners to published authors, come join us and share your writing and expertise. As Viper once said in the movie Top Gun, "...we'll make you better." This group was founded by award-winning and bestselling author Gibson Michaels, whose SENTIENCE Trilogy earned him membership in the prestigious Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) and a nomination for an inaugural 2016 Dragon Award in the Best Military Science Fiction category. We meet at 6:30-9:30PM on the first Wednesday of every month @ Denny's Restaurant, 13031 FM 1960 West, one block North of US 290 on Houston's North-West side. (Look for us in their meeting room, in the back.) This group utilizes WRITTEN critiques, submitted and done ahead of time, as this allows for a more comprehensive critique and eliminates the need to try to remember "who said what" about your work at the meetings. All members desiring a critique of their writing should upload their submission at least seven days prior to the meeting... into our group dropbox. Submissions should be no more than 10 pages, double-spaced (to allow for critique notes) and LINE NUMBERED, either in .pdf or .rtf format, to ensure that all members can open your file. All members should check for uploaded files periodically to ensure that all of the current submissions have been received. Members should then download and print all of the current month's submissions (at home) as soon as they are available, so your written critique can be completed at your leisure. This avoids last-minute rush jobs, which only cheats the recipient. To receive a decent critique, you must give a decent critique... (Hey, that's only fair.) Members should try to arrive at the restaurant by 6:30PM, so food can be ordered and socializing accomplished before we begin critiquing each other's work at 7:00PM. Verbal critiques during meetings should summarize your thoughts concerning the work itself, leaving grammar and punctuation noted on the written critique.
