What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
We will meet in the upstairs room of Portland Brew. Bring your memoir and we will read first. 5-7 pages, double spaced and copies for each reserved person is suggested. We will also discuss the current topics on options for Publishing and hopefully have some authors on hand who have used the self-publishing route.
Come join us on Zoom to meet other writers, discuss craft, and get feedback on your work. Three works are selected in advance for critique. Each of the three writers get 25 minutes of combined reading and critique time for their piece.
Writers of all levels welcome!
If you would like to join the meeting, reserve a spot to have your work critiqued, or for more information, email us at [masked].
The Fiction-Novelist Writer's Group is open to all fiction story writers. (We are not a good fit for poetry, memoir or screenplay)
We meet at Cafe Coco, 210 Louise Ave. Look for us in the back room.
For Critiques: Please BRING COPIES if you want feedback. No more than 5 double-spaced, pages of work you'd like to have critiqued. (If you need to use anything besides 12 point double spaced, 1250 words is the limit). We ask that you remain silent until the critique process is over. Remember, you won't be able to follow your readers around explaining why you wrote what you did, so if it's not clear to our group, that is valuable information for you. Once the group has finished the critique, you can address what was discussed.
If you were planning to come and are unable to make it, please please PLEASE CHANGE YOUR RSVP no later than 10 am Sunday, but sooner if you know. It saves us printing copies for people who aren't there, and allows waitlisted people in.
