Orange County - Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Group
Fantasy / Science Fiction Writers Group This is a private critique group but we are open to new members. Making the group selective helps to foster a healthy and constructive atmosphere of mutual feedback. If you're interested in joining, contact me (Joy) and tell me about yourself and your writing. No commitment required: if it sounds like you'll be a good fit, come for one session and see how well it works! WHAT TO BRING: Bring anything in the realm of Science Fiction and/or Fantasy writing and get ready for some in-depth critique. Specifically, bring 4-10 double-spaced pages of your original work that you want critiqued, with page numbers. Bring enough copies for all the RSVPs in the group. Consider checking the list before you come because we sometimes get late adds/cancels. You don't have to bring something every week, but we want to read your stuff, so bring something! It doesn't matter if you have just an outline or want to brainstorm for a new idea, we want to know what's on your BRAIN! We want to encourage each other to create and help in the brainstorming process. If you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy, you will love this group. Please be sure to contact me by Monday at noon. That way I can be sure to update the RSVP list and everyone can bring enough copies for all who attend. Note that in the event that there are only two people signed up for a meetup, it will probably be canceled, so check back before driving out. (However, there might be other people coming who aren't on the list.)
