Lompoc Writing Group
This is a weekly critique group for writers who want to give and receive constructive feedback on their pieces of ALL genres. We read and discuss poetry, novels, nonfiction, short stories, news stories, and more. We arrive at 10:00 and begin the critique at 10:15. The critique session ends at 12:00, but independent parties may agree to stay further if desired. 1. Please, bring copies of your work for all who have RSVP'd. If not, we would love to hear you read your writing, but only after those who have brought text for critique have participated. 2. The first person to arrive reads his or her work first. The reader may ask brief questions, but defending your work is unnecessary. You are the writer and may choose to change according to suggestions or not. 3. The writer to the reader's right begins the commentary, and the discussion proceeds counterclockwise. 4. The reader may ask brief questions, but defending your work is unnecessary. You are the writer and may choose to change according to suggestions or not. 5. Specific notes on the text are best for these types of critique, so bring a pen. 6. Keep your comments focused on the critique, with no bird walking into areas of your expertise or knowledge. 7. Remember to balance critique, so you provide both positive comments on what's working and tips for revision. We look forward to working with you.

What we're about

In this critique group, serious writers will meet weekly to receive feedback on a piece of no more than ten pages, typed. While the writer who arrived first reads his or her piece aloud, the other members may write suggestions and comments on the text. When the reader finishes, each member will contribute his suggestions in positive and polite manner.
