We're a friendly group of writers and poets in North London, dedicated to improving our writing, getting constructive feedback, and socializing with likeminded writers.
The format: Those who want to share bring paper copies of their work to hand out. We read four pieces, using a lottery system to decide (if you you're out of luck one week, you're guaranteed the next). Each person has 30 minutes for reading and feedback (15 reading, 15 feedback), and we're strict with the timer. Try to come a bit earlier to meet the group if you want. Bring a pen so you can write notes!
What to bring: We find 1500 words is about right, 2000 absolute max (but might cut into your critique time). Please format correctly! Times New Roman, size 12 font, double spaced :)
After the critiques, those who want hang around for a few drinks are most welcome. The Holly Bush is one of the best pubs in Hampstead.
