Critique Session

  • Jul 14, 2013 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please post the stories (fiction/non fiction) you want reviewed to the Meetup files section. Posting is very easy. After logging on to the Meetup page click "More". From the list select "Files" then add a file. Upload a file by browsing on your computer. Make the file available to members of the group only by selecting the option at the bottom.

Please keep your submission to 10 pages max. Add a short synopsis at the beginning, if applicable, to provide context.  Do not wait till the last moment for submission.

If you are not comfortable with on line submission, you have an option to bring the story to the meeting. But then please bring enough copies for distribution.

All attendees (including those who have not submitted) should review the submitted material and participate in the discussion. Authors who have submitted a story can review other submissions. Please note that the stories cannot be edited on the Meetup page. You need to download them to your computer and then mark it up.

We will select up to five stories.

Happy writing.

    The critique session pointed out discrepancies in my story line. It was helpful in revising my story and making it better.

    Be prepared to be critiqued...to death.


    Or to a mild discomfort followed by a sense of purpose and focus.

    Dun dun duuuun.
