Writer's Coffee Talk

Reality Kitchen

$1.00

We meet most weeks of the year on TUESDAY at 9 AM . It is generally a group of 10-15 writers who discuss what they are working on and come up with a subject to share our views on the craft of writing. We usually have a reading and critique session after 10 AM that lasts approx. 2 hours where people stay to get feedback on their work.

Your FIRST meeting is FREE! Come if you can and SIGN UP LATER if you wish to become a participating member and get notifications. We have a variety of interesting folks who love to write. Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry, Musical Lyrics, Commentary or just interested in becoming writers.

If unable to attend TUESDAY MORNINGS we have added another reading session on Wednesday nights. You are still welcome to attend and we will announce other future EVENING EVENTS we also plan to have that may work out better within your schedule.

Member who join will get notifications of meetings, any cancellations, holiday breaks and occasional special messages.

"No-shows" over a few months who have never attended may be removed from our list when we update our active members. Updating our list helps active members better communicate with each other.

Evening Coffee Critique

Black Rock Coffee Bar Eugene

Want to get some detailed feedback regarding your writing? Come join us at Black Rock Coffee bar for our Evening Coffee Critique. Please be prepared to buy a beverage or snack to support the lovely venue!

To participate in the critique, submit your piece of 1250 words or less to [masked] by midnight of the Tuesday prior to the meeting. Make sure to include your name and email in your document! You will receive an email shortly after the deadline containing all the pieces that are going to be critiqued during that meeting. You are responsible for printing, digitally transferring, or otherwise preparing your copy of the submitted stories so that you can read along and potentially leave comments on the piece.

During the meeting, each writer will read their submitted piece (up to 20 minutes each) and afterward the rest of the participants will go around the table to offer suggestions, note places of confusion, etc. For the sake of brevity, we should try to limit most technical stuff to being written on the documents themselves.

You don't need to submit something to be critiqued to come, but please do try to have the pieces in front of you so you can contribute to the conversation.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask them here on Meetup or send them to the [masked] email.

Hope to see you there!
