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:

3-3:15 - chill, chat, order food.

3:15- 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. The writer will listen without responding, and will then have 5 minutes for a response to the group.

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 nook where we do our thang.

See you there,

Alex

    My Lords and Ladies, please allow me to submit my apologies, but the hangover I am experiencing at this moment makes my attendance completely impossible. In other words, I drank way too much last night and am now sick. Blerta volunteered to be chief dictator today. Again - super sorry guys and I hope you have a good meeting.

      I hope you had a birthday full of mystery and intrigue. It's not up to me, but I believe that the hangover werewolves are punishment enough.

    Hey crew, Sorry for being MIA this week and being insanely slow with uploading. I'm uploading a short story called The Curse of the Ninth Symphony. I'm just going to upload the whole thing, but feel free to read ten pages or so since I am uploading it so late. A

    PS Potential topic for the week: how to create a writing discipline and overcome resistance when so much of our time is spent trying to pay the bills and this city is so distracting/exhausting.

      I look forward to reading your short story. I also look forward to your critique of my submission from last week (Chapter 4). See you tomorrow.

    Maybe Alex can submit too. Two entries should be sufficient

    Is anyone submitting work this week? Dan says his intro is ready, but he's not attending. Also, there are no new files uploaded. So what's the agenda?
