APRIL Wilmington Writers Group - CRITIQUE
Monday, April 14, 2014 - 7 pm
The April Wilmington Writers Group meeting is Critique Night! Get constructive feedback on your current writing projects by other members of the group.
PROGRAM INSTRUCTIONS: 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 from a piece approximately 5 pages long
• Please bring eight copies, double spaced and typed.
• Place the title of the piece and the page number on all of the pages.
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 now Red Robin in north Wilmington, north of the Concord Mall on Rt 202. The address is 6100 Brandywine Parkway, Wilmington, DE between the Target and the water fountain lake. 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 Red Robin off their extensive menu. We don't get charged for the great room, but Red Robin does have the expectation that attendees will order a meal. It is a fair expectation and the meals are reasonably priced. IF you have special dietary needs, the manager has agreed to create some vegetarian friendly meals with some advance notice. If you would like this, please call and make arrangements at least a day in advance.
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 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 we pay for meetup, the web site hosting and buying meals for guest speakers, handouts, fliers, etc. YOUR FIRST MEETING IS FREE AND A TRIAL TO SEE IF YOU FIND IT A FIT! If you like it (and we think you will) then you will be expected to contribute the annual membership ($40) or pay a per-meeting contribution ($10).
This is a sister group of the Main Line Writers Group, held the third Wednesday of the month in King of Prussia. you can check it out and see what people think of it! http://www.meetup.com/Main-Line-Writers
