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, 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- 5:15 - critique works

5:15 - 5:30 - 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! Each person will have a max of 5 minutes to offer feedback.

Finally, let's make sure to all order some food so that we can be good guests of Uncle George, stay on his good side, and have him continue providing us space in the frozen nook where we do our thang.

See you there,

Alex

    Hey It just hit me, next Sunday is Easter, will everyone still be there? And will Uncle G be more busy? I'll still be there.

    Maria and Kat'ya - come to the meeting and we'll discuss what to do when we have more than eight people that want to come (which will probably be most meetings).

    Are you guys very strict about the number 8? (Just wondering) I understand if you are, just thought I'd ask.

    During this meeting, we will: 1. Check out Steve's revision of The Ballad of Pie-Chart John.
    2. Check out Dan's excerpt from his work "Gotten Such"
    3. If we are super efficient, check out the story "I am the Monster Linked Below" by yours truly. Some people have seen the first part. If you have not, please be kind and read the whole damn thang.
