What we're about
Welcome to EBSFFW! The group is open to anyone 18 years old or older who is writing in the genre or who enjoys it enough to read other people's writing and provide serious and supportive critique. What kind of writing? Screenplays, novels, short stories, YA...you name it. We share our writing before the meeting, so the meeting itself is straight-up discussion.
Interested in submitting? The first step is coming to a meeting! We want to make sure you're familiar with EBSFFW's style of critique and that you're a real, live human before we accept manuscripts to send on to our members. We don't have too many rules about what you can submit, but we do offer short fiction and novel critiques at different times. Here are the full submission guidelines:

Have you come to a meeting and are ready to submit? Email your work to firstname.lastname@example.org . Our admin team will fit you into the critique queue. We don't currently have a waitlist, but if we do, you can see how far ahead we are scheduling critiques here:
