Davis Writer's Salon Meetup

  • Jan 7, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Thank you for joining Davis Writers Salon. Each week, we pick two submissions to read for the following week. Please come to the meetup prepared, having read the two submissions from our writers. These are typically 10 pages, double-spaced. You can find these under the "Files" link under the "More" tab. Make sure to be logged in to see the most recent (usually the top two). Be prepared to offer both positive feedback and constructive criticism.

Join or login to comment.

    I apologise for not showing up Tuesday. I forgot that I had RSVP'd and I had been so busy during the holidays I didn't even get a chance to check my email. I'll see everyone at the next one next week. I hope everybody had a great holiday!

    Great to see everybody after the Holidays, especially Nicole, in her excellent new writing nook & house! And Megan, what a great hat you wore! Very hipster.

    Thanks for the critique of my kinda rough piece. If I submit anything else from book one, it will be likewise rough. However, anyone willing to do a full manuscript critique will have the option after the edit. Still about a month or two away I'd say.

    It was great to see everybody. Super writing, Debbie and John. Nicole, your new home is wonderful! Margo, thanks for the very special quinoa chocolate! Yummy!
    See you all soon!

    Sorry, just found MP's email--I remembered I saw it last week, forgot it was an email, not a post--one for the "duh" file:) Look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

    January 6, 2014

  • Stacia L.

    Nicole, would it be possible for you to post your address? I don't see it anywhere, and the googlemaps link doesn't seem to be working for me.
    Thanks.

  • Debbie K.

    Hi MP, I just got your email. I've re-posted. I'm sorry you couldn't open the first one! I'll remember to always make an rtf file from now on :)

    January 6, 2014

    • John M.

      Shhh, MP, you're supposed to keep the suspense building.

      1 · January 6, 2014

    • MP S.

      Oh, darn... Well, I must say, both submissions this week are very good--John, yours carried me away to another place and time...

      January 6, 2014

  • MP S.

    Everyone attending the Meetup tomorrow--note the change of venue, and please read the two files so we can all discuss them.

    I understand we are meeting at Nicole's new place this week, per the mailing list. From FB I see that Cindy is in DC. Enjoy, Cindy! Let me be one of the first to thank Nicole.

  • Debbie K.

    Uh oh. I'm on the wait list but I'm one of the submitters.

    January 3, 2014

    • MP S.

      Just come on over--there's room for you.

  • Robin Wing D.

    Yes, we definitely have two for the next meeting on the 7th of Jan. I know one is Debbie, and.... now I'm thinking John (???)....but I would not stake anyone's life on that one... Let hope they remember who they are. * Merriment all around! *

    • John M.

      You remember correctly. I am up. I've written a lot lately. What should I post? Action? Romance? Carnage? Ah, all three.

      2 · December 25, 2013

    • MP S.

      Let the body count begin! In my L.A. writing group, one guy's writing was so bloody, we'd take bets on the weekly body count... You're a better writer, John.

  • margo king l.

    Holding ... but dibs w/ Megan for Jan 14. Tanks! mkl

    • MP S.

      Oh, Margo, this is your year! I bet you finish your novel and sell it, too!

      December 20, 2013

    • margo king l.

      Thank U, MP, o ye of lotsa faith!

      1 · December 21, 2013

  • MP S.

    Hold on, Margo and Megan... I believe we chose two folks to present that night... Anyone remember who? It was a "as we're going out the door" thing. If one of the persons can't/won't, please talk to Margo and Megan. If not, Margo and Megan, you guys get the 14th. I love the eagerness! This is going to be a fantastic year for writing!

    December 20, 2013

    • Megan R.

      I'm totally fine going the 14th. I wasn't at the last meeting, so I just wanted to jump on it if there was space available :)

      December 20, 2013

  • Megan R.

    I have actually have some pages to show you guys too! Can I call dibs on a space?

    December 20, 2013

  • margo king l.

    If no one's lined up to submit Jan 7, I will have a chpt ready. Going to finish my novel, "American Splits," in 2014, barring institutionalization. Peace & Love, margo
