What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
Submissions will be due on March 28, and we'll follow our usual submission/critique process using Dropbox. In order to discuss the crits, we'll meet on Google Hangouts at the appointed date and time. Please upload your submissions to our Dropbox by March 28 (limit is 4500 words, but you may go a bit over to avoid an awkward break), double-spaced, in Word or RTF. If I do not already have your email address, please email me at [masked] (backup address is [masked]) with your name, so I can give you access to our Dropbox (You will need to create an account). Note whether it is a complete work or a piece in progress. Critiques will be optional on any work posted later. Please upload your crits to Dropbox by April 5 (If you submit work, your colleagues will critique it, so there is an expectation of quid pro quo. Note: Some members may submit work written for mature readers, so, if you are under 18 years of age, we request that you obtain permission from a parent/guardian before you participate.
We'll meet virtually on Google Hangouts. This is where I usually mention the venue’s scrumptious fare, but you’ll be on your own food-wise. Don’t be shy; go ahead and feed your face. No critiques, just great conversation with fascinating people like you. This will give us the opportunity to discuss your current project, the myriad challenges of writing, and finding an agent and/or publisher. Plus, you'll get to know a number of your fellow writers. You’re welcome to bring a guest(s). We’ll start at 3:00, but you may drop in a bit later (no set end time; we usually gab for about two hours, but you may stay as long as you'd like). I’m new to Google Hangouts, so I’m making it my business to figure out its video-conferencing capabilities and to do some test runs before this next Gabfest. Some of you are not familiar with this Google Hangouts and will need help; others may know it well and can offer helpful hints.
