Writers Critique

Writers will submit their works in progress in the files section for other members to read and write comments on. If possible, please bring a few copies to pass around just in case, but this is not mandatory.

This group is self-sustaining. I expect to attend every meeting I post, but, in the event I, suddenly, can not, if an assistant organizer is able to attend, they can help lead the group for that specific meetup.

Members are encouraged to keep sharing to 10-15 minutes each, if the group is larger.

Also, please note, there are submission guidelines. They are listed as 'Submission Guidelines' under the 'Discussions' tab. There is a format we follow in an attempt to keeps things moving along in a freindly, yet, concise manner.

Join or login to comment.

    I had a great time meeting you guys and getting re-immersed into groups of writers :) I hope to be able to attend many more!

    On a completely different note, I totally forgot to say this before I left. A friend of mine was going to attend an adult spelling bee with me at the Book Cellar in Lincoln Square on the 4th at 7pm, but isn't coming. I have a spot reserved for him (spaces fill up fast and I was once waitlisted!) if one of you is interested in taking his place . . . let me know! It's good fun and they have lots of prizes :D

    I know I've said it before, but I always walk away having learned something. I make notes about books mentioned along with great suggestions to make my story better.

      Sometimes goes about two hours, but, hope it doesn't run super long, I know people have things to do.

    Well, it took some tooth pulling and a little help from another Meetup member, but, I finally got my work critiqued by that Grey Wolfe Publishing.

    I am curious if anyone else submitted anything for review. They seem good on their word, for the most part, but, I was wondering what anyone else thought.

    Hey gang, just posted my file. I summarized the first three chapters if you haven't read it or have already forgotten what it was about. Cheers!
