April MAIN LINE WRITERS GROUP - CRITIQUE
Wednesday, April 19, 2017
The April Main Line Writers Group meeting is Critique Night! 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.
Our meeting place is Michael's Restaurant Deli in King of Prussia, just north of The King of Prussia Mall on Rt 202. The address is 130 Town Center Road in King of Prussia,[masked]-3265. The meeting officially starts at 7:00 pm but many of us come early (around 6) 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 you can order a scrumptious meal at Michael's off their extensive menu. We don't get charged for the great room, but Michaels does have the expectation that attendees will order a meal. It is a fair expectation and the meals are very reasonably priced. PURCHASING YOUR MEAL IS A REQUIREMENT OF ATTENDING THE MEETING.
Mark your calendar for every third Wednesday of the month. Feel free to tell others and bring a friend or two.
This is a membership based group. Annual dues are $48 (that's just $4 a meeting) and cover a variety of expenses including web site hosting, Meetup administration fees (you get the service free but I pay for them), the equipment, batteries, printing, guest speaker meals, etc. You are invited to attend one meeting for $10 as a sample, to see whether it is a fit for you. If you decide to pay the annual dues that evening, your membership dues will cover the meeting as well. You can also pay your dues online.

We are flexible. We have never set a limit on the number of interested writers who can attend. If you show up without RSVPing or RSVP at the last minute, there is almost always room for you. But please, if you know you won't be able to make it and have RSVP'd YES, please take the time to go in and change your RSVP status to NO. It helps us determine any changes needed in seating arrangements.
As usual, any questions, please contact me, Gary Zenker, at[masked] or [masked]. We are all looking forward to seeing you there.
