Read & Critique

This fun and  productive group will lift your writing to a new level. Bring a section of your essay, short story or novel of approximatley 1,500 words. Attendees will read their pieces and receive an on the spot critique. We will try to split up into groups of six or less. Our goal is to go home at 9pm but we often run over ... and over ... and over.

    I followed the "I wasn't able to attend" link and it led to a page that asked me why. Here is my answer:

    The details of my life are immaterial. I followed the "I wasn't able to attend" link in order to apologize to the group and let them know that I had a story all ready to go. Now I'll have another chunk of time during which to improve it, so they won't have to point out as many flaws. So there's good and bad in my absence. Have a nice day!

      There are such links? How intrusive. Who's running meetup, the IRS? You were missed, but we assume everyone has a life (how else could you get fresh material?) so no need to explain, but we always enjoy your presence - and Jenna too. -Mary Etta

      In the email you get after the event, there's a link at the bottom "Didn't make it?" so I tried it. Thanks! I'll let Jenna know too.

    Read and critique proved very helpful. The astute group made welcome comments, pointing out concrete, fixable problems. A lively group unafraid of laughter.
