Pensacola Weekly Writing and Critique Group

Looking to get some fresh eyes and detailed feedback on your work? A critique group can help you to:

Gain new perspective on your work from members of various backgrounds.

Learn to talk about your writing and yourself in front of others.

Explore different angles that you might not have considered.

Add to your list of storytelling techniques.

Enjoy opportunities to use others as a sounding board for new story ideas or challenges in current works.

 


Guidelines:

We promote a professional, structured, and respectful environment that is both honest and constructive.

All types of writing are welcome! Many of our members are also involved in the NWFLWG and include writers of literary fiction, fantasy/sci-fi, non-fiction, autobiographies, poetry, screenplays, and more.

Our group includes all experience levels, from published authors to newcomers putting their first ideas to paper.

We read all lengths of manuscripts, from short stories to full-length novels.


Meeting Schedule:

We meet at 6 pm every Tuesday at Books-a-Million (6235 North Davis Highway, Pensacola, FL 32504)

Weekly submissions are limited to around 15 double-spaced pages or 3000 words. Of course, don't just cut off mid-sentence. If you have to go over a little bit to finish a chapter or scene, that's perfectly fine.

    Well, poop. No, the meeting hasn't been changed to the 2nd, it's still Tuesday the 1st. I really need to remember not to post important things before being properly caffeinated on a Monday morning. Sorry about that, Shaun!

    You just confused me actually. Is there still a meeting for tomorrow? Because if you have one (or have moved tomorrow's) to Wed, 10/2 then I can't make that. I have to work that night.

    Oh, and I wanted to post a general apology for the double scheduled meetup. I changed the date of the last meeting to the 2nd, but it still has the original post. I don't want to cancel either of them because it will probably send out a notification that the meeting is canceled and I don't want any confusion!

    I'm so sorry, Laura, I didn't even see your comment until now. The meeting was on Thursday, but you didn't miss much this time around. We'll be back to our Tuesday schedule this week, so hopefully we'll see you tomorrow. Also, feel free to email me directly if I don't get back to you fast enough. My email address should be in your welcome packet from your first meeting :)

    We missed you, Laura! Just make sure that you take note that next week we're doing the SpecFic meeting so no critique meeting on Tuesday. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled literary brutality...erm...I mean critiquing the following Tuesday :)
