This month's meetup will be devoted to the topic of how to give and receive feedback for our writing projects. Every writer can benefit from sharing work with their peers in order to get feedback and critiques. However, many writers are too nervous to read their work in front of others, or don't know which comments to use and which to ignore, or don't know how to give feedback in a productive way, etc. This meetup will give helpful suggestions and provide an opportunity to share your own work with fellow group members.
Members are encouraged to bring copies of their own writing projects to read aloud during the meetup so that we can practice giving and receiving feedback in a helpful and encouraging environment. If you'd like to read your work, please limit the length to a piece that can be read in under 15 minutes. Also, please bring enough copies to share with other members.
We're trying out a new location, Notre Dame Plaza, for our meetup this month to see if it's more convenient for people. Located near Dolores Park, this facility is easily accessible from the 16th Street BART/MUNI station or via several bus lines. Here are the details:
Sunday, June 1,
2:00pm - 4:00pm
347 Dolores Street b/t 16th & 17th
Enter at the left rear of the building past the rose garden then come up to the large community room on the 2nd floor.
Looking forward to seeing you there and to reading your work!
