Tuesday Writing Critique
Tuesday's meetup will be a writing critique for those who have work that could use some friendly feedback. We'll try to keep it to reasonably short pieces (~2000 words). On that point: - Please send your work to me ([masked]), so I can allot time, pushing some stories to the next session if we have a particularly popular week. - To facilitate that, please have any work up for critique emailed to me by the end of Sunday, July 22nd. - We'll have a feedback sheet to fill out during the meeting itself that can be found on the group's Google Drive: [ https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1qSO1SLdyF3448U2LTUynJi07t9mVzPEw?usp=sharing ] I'll bring tons of copies to the meeting itself, but feel free to look it over now if you like. - The writing pieces that people email to me can also be viewed at the Google Drive link above. - It can be taxing to take criticism on anything, especially something as personal as your own creative work. However, keep in mind that feedback is directed toward the piece, and not at you as a writer. Constructive criticism is a huge part of working through our pitfalls and bad habits. - One last point: in order to do a thorough job, we'll likely only critique two or three pieces. Therefore, feel free to come, even if you don't have something that needs critiquing. Hope to see you there!

What we're about

This group is for anyone who's interested in writing fiction and meeting people who are interested in the same. While we strive for a core group of writers who share goals and are one another's accountability, there's also a place for casual drop-in style writing. Meetings alternate between free writing sessions, writing off of prompt, real-time critique of selected members' pieces, and more focused workshops. Let's dive into writing in this beautiful city.
