We're a writer's workshop that meets twice a week to critique writing and discuss literary theory. Typically we draw between 50-60 writers and discussants per week, subdivided into between 5-10 groups of between 5-8 participants each. Most do not RSVP on meetup.com.

Writers of all skill levels, educations, and intentions are welcome to join us. We do ask, however, that you are respectful toward the workshop and its participants by arriving with a mindset that will allow you to engage with others both positively and productively. 

Submissions are distributed electronically in advance to our meetings, and participants are expected to read the submissions closely before each meeting. We feel that this is integral to providing a deep and thoughtful critique.

Our submission process can be summed up as: the more you attend, the more you're welcomed to submit your own writing for critique. In our experience, this keeps the ratio between attendances:submissions fair for everyone.

Goal

We gather together in order to improve our writing craft, learn how a group of informed peers respond to our writing, to study literary theory, and to have a great time with a community of like-minded peers!

Day/Time & Location

Workshops fall on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 7:00PM-8:30PM at The Side Door. 

Each workshop has a different focus:

Tuesdays—contemporary fiction, realism, essay, memoir, and poetry.

Wednesdays—speculative fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, genre, and scripts.

We're looking for ...

We're looking for writers who are committed to writing, critiquing, and discussing theory.  If this sounds like you, we'd be delighted to have you attend the workshop!
