What we're about

Need motivation or support in getting your words on paper or selling them? Writers write, but sometimes it's difficult to keep the words flowing and/or maintain confidence in your work.

Our weekly format can provide the focus you need:

• Once each month (usually the first Saturday), we meet in large group at the Redondo Beach Main Library for interactive discussion (author talks, special guests, topics of interest, etc.);

• Additionally, smaller groups meet weekly for Writers' Workshops at various locations in the South Bay. Participants are encouraged to bring material each week to share and receive real-time constructive feedback within a supportive critique environment.

Tuesday Nite Writer's Critique

Old Town Torrance

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is evolving on a daily basis and its effects are being felt around the world. While the cancellation of social gatherings is required to ensure social distancing, it can also be a blow to creative outlets. Although we are not open to new members at this time, we encourage writers to keep working on their craft, don't stop, don't give up. Keep honing your WIP, and when the "Safer at Home" order is lifted, we will look forward to opening our doors once again. About Us: We endeavor to provide in-depth and constructive critique of fiction and non-fiction creative work. How to Apply: First, place yourself on the WAITLIST for the meeting date you'd like to attend. Because we must restrict the number of group members, we keep the waitlist on at all times. Even group members place themselves there first before being accepted. It’s a silly system, but our best option given the limited functionality of Meetup. Don’t worry about going on there- it’s no big deal. Second, please send a message to the group host, JY Olmos, and state that you read and understand the group format and requirements. Both steps are required. It is highly recommended that you have your profile filled out completely. Our Format: The Tuesday Nite Writer's Critique meets weekly in the South Bay to discuss and critique each member's unpublished creative work. Yeah, we're serious when it comes to writing, but we have plenty of fun too. We’re open to general fiction, non-fiction or blog posts. Not included are poetry, screenplays, or resumes. Requirements: Prior to each meeting, each member uploads a drafted portion of their work to our file sharing site. (approx. 1,500 words each) Each member reads all submissions and provides specific comments in writing before the meeting. At the meeting, we discuss each submission for clarifications, questions, and ideas, in a relaxed, supportive environment. Though it’s rare, there are times when members may have eight submissions to critique before a meeting. New Member Requirements: At an applicant's first meeting, they may share, out loud, 500 words of their project. If they’d prefer to sit back and see how we operate, that’s fine too, but there is an expectation they will share their work at the next meeting. It’s a great opportunity to meet some nice people and be productive. We look forward to hearing from you.
