What we're about

Write Club? What is Write Club?

Write! Show it to the Club! Then Have Your Ego (Lovingly and Respectfully) Punched In The Face!

The longer version is as follows:

Write whatever you like (poetry, novel chapter, screenplay, flash fiction, seriously whatever), though we ask for warnings for anything explicitly violent or disturbing.

Show it to the club members by either posting it online (as a downloadable file, a link to a website, share it on google drive, etc) or bringing physical copies to the event.

Please read everything posted beforehand!

Once we're all seated in (usually) a circle, first we have the Comments/LOVE round, where we say nice things. Love the character? Thought the premise was interesting? Tell the writer all about it.

Then, we have the Critiques/HATE round (my favourite round) where everybody takes turns suggesting improvements. Cliche? To wordy? Clunky dialogue? Tell all!

And finally, we have the Counter/NOPE round, in which the writer can address the comments and critiques. Thank the compliments (maybe they saw something you didn't notice). Or say Nope, that critiqued bit is actually a set up for *insert scenario* so it can't go!

There will be time for a little discussion, but depending on the number of works that needs looking at, we might have to cut it short. All rounds are timed.

We often go for a dinner/drink afterwards to really dig into each other's works (or, you know, just say hi and catch up) so if you still have a few questions, you'll have plenty of time afterwards.
