What we're about

A small group of people who get together to critique each others' works. Many of our participants have been published, and some have achieved awards for their work. We cover many genres, and have covered historical fiction, science fiction, YA fantasy, and autobiographical semi-fiction (mostly-true stories, but not written in the first person). We don't do poetry, and have zero experience with plays or screenplays. We currently have no one working on nonfiction, but we don't rule that out. Past members have done nonfiction and autobiographical family histories, for example. We meet every Monday at 5pm, and members are expected to make as many meetings as they can (if you only show up on the evening your work is being critiqued, it's not going to work out).

Pre-pandemic, we met at The Childrens' Institute, but we currently meet virtually via WhatsApp audio.
