Astoria Sunday Meetup @ Uncle George's

Come join your fellow writers at Uncle George's Tavern!

We will be sitting in a nook towards the back, just ask the host for the "writer's group" or "Alex's table".

If you would like to have your work critiqued during this meeting, please write "SUNDAY," followed by your name and the title of your work in the uploads. Each person at the meeting should read the Sunday works before the meeting, and should bring them in on paper or in digital form so that we can all edit the works together.

The group's agenda will be as follows:

3-3:30 - chill, chat, order food.

3:30-4:45 - critique works

4:45 - 5:00 - chill, chat, pay the bill

When critiquing a fellow writer's work, please begin by telling the writer what WORKED for you in the piece, what you liked, what you enjoyed and why. It is as important for writers to know what they're doing right as what they're doing wrong. After you share what you enjoyed, offer suggestions for what can be improved!

See you there,

Alex

    Hi, am disappointed but I can't make it today. Got unexpected company. Would like to still be a member and have an acquaintance also interested. Thank you and have a good meeting.

    Hello Sunday AWG.
    I've posted the revised Chapter One of Pie Chart John. I see that there are three pieces to review already, which should be the max. And since I will not physically be there, only perhaps popping in via the interwebs, I am submitting my piece to be discussed next week (3/17). It has been revised considerably, so even those who read the previous version will find much changed about the chapter.
    Have a great meeting.
    Best,
    Steve

    Ladies and gentlemen: whose work are we looking at next time? Pretty sure it's time for Blerta and Maria to submit.

    I fully intend to attend via Skype. My head will no doubt appear smaller, but I am confident group members will not find this too disconcerting.

      Rock on, Steve. I think my Skype id is AlexeiSoma - we'll try to accomodate.
