Welcome writers, new and old!
We're officially on a twice-a-month basis now, so come join us with your work and let's share feedback.
You may post ahead of time in the "Files" section, although it is not required. The way work is as follows:
6:15 - 6:30 Meet, chat, get settled in
6:30 - done (usually sometime between 8:30 and 9:30, depending on the number of writers sharing) We take turns reading our work aloud. Yes, aloud! It allows for the writer to hear how his/her words sound to others, and allows the listeners/readers to hear how the story was intended by the author. After reading for about ten minutes, everyone present offers feedback and critique. We like to focus on big-picture issues, such as character development, plot points, story potential etc., rather than proper use of commas or other minute details.
We suggest you bring about 6-10 pages of typed work, double-spaced, or the equivalent (or less). If your short story just happens to be one extra page, we're usually fine, but if it is a section of a larger work, remember that we need time for all members. Many members bring several copies to pass around for reading along, but it is not required.
We looking forward to hearing what you've been working on!
