Light Up Your Story With Emotional Fireworks

Please upload your submissions (6000 word limit, but you may go a bit over to avoid an awkward break), double-spaced, in Word 97-03 (.doc), or RTF) to "Files" under the "More" tab by Noon on Sat. 7/6. Note whether it is a complete work or a piece in progress. Critiques will be optional on any work posted later. Bring your crits to the meetup so that you can present their main points, and please upload them to "Files" ASAP afterward. (If you submit work it WILL be critiqued; there is an expectation of quid pro quo even if you do not attend the meetup.) Note: Some work submitted may be intended for mature readers, so if you are under 18 years of age we request that you obtain permission from a parent/guardian to participate. At Flapjack's enter through the front door, make a right, and go to the tables at the far end. We'll be in the restaurant, not the pub. See you there!

    I'm so frustrated! I've had to be out of town almost every meetup weekend so far this year. I hope to see you guys again soon. I think the last time was what? February?

      Maybe next month! We would love to have you back.

      I hope you're in town next month. We've missed you.

    Hey, I would love to participate in peer editing, but I work all of Sunday, so I will be unable to attend the meetings. Is there any way that I can participate without being here in person?

    July 12, 2013

    • Ashley H.

      You can participate virtually. The deal is that you critique the work posted for the month and your work will get critiqued. Since you posted your work after the deadline for July (I realize you just joined), everyone might not critique your stuff, but I'm sure some people will. I'll look over it and post a critique soon.

      Although, I told you that you had missed the deadline, I will try to find time to review your piece. Susan is also participating virtually. The process differs only in that you will not be at Flapjack's on Sunday.

    Yikes! I thought tomorrow's Gabfest was in Camp Hill. I cannot make it to York tomorrow. Sorry to have to miss everyone. Have fun.

    Hi my name is Denese (I go by Dee) have been writing poems for years. I started a book...which I would like to have feedback on.

  • Anthony C.

    I will be there if I don't have to work. Is it possible that I can still give you a submission?

    June 14, 2013

    • Don H.

      Certainly; the deadline isn't until noon on 7/6. :)

    I am in the process of writing an autobiographical novel that is very emotional so I thought that this topic would fit perfectly.
