October Meeting – Critique Session
Wednesday, October 11, 2017 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Montgomery College Rockville Campus
Science (SC) Building Off South Campus Drive Room SC459
Have you started a story or a manuscript that you would like others to see? Maybe you’ve put something away because you weren’t happy with it. Do you think you are ready for feedback on your story, memoir, poem or nonfiction?
During the critique session, you will get a chance to read your work to others, hear what others have to say about your work, learn what is needed in the first several pages of a manuscript, obtain enough information to create a better beginning, and receive the encouragement and support you need to want to finish your piece.
Bring 2-3 pages of a beginning story, memoir, nonfiction, or 2-3 poems. We will break into groups of 3 and 4 and by genre. You will read your work to a group of 2 -3 other members. They will offer helpful suggestions to enhance your piece.
You’ll want to bring a paper and a pen to write down all the helpful comments and suggestions that you receive.
