Feedback Session
This group is for anyone interested in writing, whether it be prose or poetry or non-fiction. We get together once a week to listen and support each other in our work. Attendees bring something they have written, no longer than six pages, which they read aloud. They then receive feedback from the rest of the group. The size of the group is limited to 6, so that everyone is able to receive a full 30 minutes of constructive feedback including reading time. If you have nothing to read but would like to come and listen, you are most welcome too. There is quiet space at the back of the cafe where we meet.

Testimonial: "The time spent with Haze was without a doubt the most valuable session that I have attended. The atmosphere was extremely supportive, and Haze's critiquing was very insightful and extremely helpful to my project. I would definitely attend any writing event hosted by Haze."
