Hello and welcome to the Metrowest Writer's Circle, a writer's group establish in May of 2010 based in Framingham, Massachusetts and dedicated to supporting aspiring novelists, short fiction writers, and poets through disciplined critique sessions. If this sounds like you, we'd love to have you joins us.
Currently, we meet on the second Saturday of every month at Framingham Public Library. Each critique session generally lasts about two hours and one or two works are critiqued.
THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE REQUESTING TO JOIN
MWC runs on an attendance-based system. This means the more meetings you attend, the more likely it is we'll review your work. New members still have ample opportunity to have their work critiqued.
The three words that embody our critique process are honesty, respect, and discipline.
MWC runs a biannual audit of its membership. Members who have not participated in the group for six months will be removed from the membership unless they request to remain in the group.
Despite how serious all these points sound, we're still a fun bunch of people, and have one or two social events a year. Writers need to socialize, too. :)
1) Send an approximately 13 line writing sample to meetup (at) aaleil (dot) com with 'Writing Sample' as the subject header. You may also use the 'Contact Us' button to send your sample.
2) Click the 'Join us' button on the top right of the screen and fill out the membership form.
If you have requested membership and have not heard from us, make sure you have performed Step 1. If you have performed both steps and still have not heard from us, feel free to send an inquiry via the 'contact-us' button.
