December Wilmington-Chadds Ford Writers Group - Critique - Monday, December 9, 2019. The December Wilmington-Chadds Ford Writers Group meeting is Critique Night! Get constructive feedback on your current writing projects by other members of the group. You don't have to bring anything to the group if you don't wish to do so. You can participate by offering feedback on those who do bring pieces for critique and are welcomed to do so. You will also learn a lot just from the critique of other people's work. Critique offers honest, constructive feedback for authors. If you do wish to have a piece critiqued, please follow these guidelines: • Bring a piece or excerpt approximately 5-6 pages long. • Please bring eight copies, double spaced and typed. • Place the title and the page number on each page. We need to break into smaller groups to ensure that all pieces get a reasonable amount of time for reading and reviewing. The number of groups is dependent on the number of authors who bring pieces for critique Our meeting place is McKenzie’s Brew House, 451 Wilmington-West Chester Pike in Glen Mills PA just north of the Delaware/PA border. The meeting officially starts at 7:00 pm but many of us come early (around 6:30 pm) to eat and socialize a bit - but you can order your meal at any time during the meeting. They are seating us in an area which should be good for creating a closeness and offer us some seclusion. Just a reminder that you can order a scrumptious meal at McKenzie’s Brew House off their extensive menu. We don't get charged for the great room, but McKenzie’s does have the expectation that attendees will order a meal. It is a fair expectation and the meals are reasonably priced. To be clear: you are expected to order your meal that evening. Mark your calendar for every second Monday of the month. Feel free to tell others and bring a friend or two. This is a membership-based group. After you attend and try us out, we ask that if you find the group of value and want to continue, you help with the costs of running the group. The costs of the group include the fee I pay for Meetup (it's free to you for use but I pay a hefty administrative fee), the web site hosting and buying meals for guest speakers, handouts, fliers, batteries for the microphone, etc. etc. YOUR FIRST MEETING IS $10 AND A TRIAL TO SEE IF YOU FIND IT A FIT! If you do opt to attend after the sample meeting, we expect you to join as a paying member for an annual dues of $50. If you pay that evening, you'll get credit for the $10 meeting fee for the evening toward your annual dues. Thank you! This is a sister group of the Main Line Writers Group, held the third Wednesday of the month in King of Prussia.
