Monday WIP is a sub-group of RRWG that shares and critiques submissions. Because participating in a critique session asks members to be vulnerable, we require all participants to attend at least one meeting before joining the WIP group. We want to meet your face!
Once you've attended a meeting, you can join the WIP Participant group on our forum where we upload submissions and critiques. A more thorough explanation of WIP requirements and expectations is available once you've been made a member of the WIP group. Go ahead and become a forum member at rrwg.freeforums.net now as your first step! (We share all kinds of tips, encouragement and publishing opportunities over there, too.)
You must RSVP prior to coming. If you are unable to RSVP, send me a message. If you are bringing a guest, remember to include that in your RSVP.
During the meeting, submissions are critiqued in order of submission. We use the Milford-Style Workshopping Method (http://cascadewriters.com/milford-style-workshopping/). The critiques begin with the person to the author's left and go around the circle. In the name of expediency, authors are asked to remain silent during the critiques. Authors are given time to respond after all critiques have been given. The amount of time allotted to each person will depend on the number of submissions and the number of people providing feedback.
