Get constructive feedback on your current writing projects by other members of the group. You don't have to bring anything to the group if you don't wish to do so. You can participate by offering feedback on those who do bring pieces for critique and are welcomed to do so. So even those critique months where you don't plan to bring something, please come! If you do wish to have a piece critiqued, please follow these guidelines: - Bring a piece or excerpt from a piece approximately 5 pages long - Please bring nine copies, double spaced and typed. Double spaced, 12 point Times Roman typeface. We generally break into smaller groups to ensure that all pieces get a reasonable amount of time for reading and reviewing. So count on reading between 3 to 5 pieces, depending on the attendance that evening. Meeting Place Our meeting place is the Black Powder Tavern, south of The King of Prussia Mall just off Rt 202. 1164 Valley Forge Rd · Wayne, PA. Across from the Gateway Shopping Center and about seven minutes from our previous meeting place, Peppers. The meeting officially starts at 7:00 pm but many of us come early (around 6:30) to eat and socialize a bit - but you can order your meal at any time during the meeting. We use a private room and the acoustics are great. You'll have no problem hearing our speakers or each other. Meetings officially end around 9 pm although some stay for more socializing afterwards. Just a reminder that we don't get charged for the great room, but The Black Powder Tavern does have the expectation that attendees will order a meal. It is a fair expectation. The Restaurant offers a variety of sandwiches and entres on their menu and you can order from the entire menu. PURCHASING YOUR MEAL IS A REQUIREMENT OF ATTENDING THE MEETING. There are NO EXCEPTIONS. Mark your calendar for every third Monday of the month. Feel free to tell others and bring a friend or two. Mark your calendar for every third Monday of the month.
