Critique Group Starting

Dear Christians Who Write:

One of our new members, Cheryl Black, has an immediate need to critiquing for a contest she is entering. I am endorsing her appeal as spelled out below. If this is successful, we just might use it as a model to expand our in house criting services to one another.

<< Hi Tom,

I plan to enter the 2006 Writer's Digest writing competition and the deadline for submissions is May 16th. See Writer's Digest for guidelines and entry forms. In preparation for the contest, I am looking to recruit a few RCWW members to join me for one of 3 critique writing sessions the week of May 8th. The purpose of the meetings is to review each other's work and give verbal and written feedback.

Critique Session - Dates and Times

Wednesday, May 10th, 11:30-1:30 PM

Thursday, May 11th, 6:30-8:30 PM

Friday, May 12th, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM

The locations will be determined at a later date.

Session Guidelines

In order for each writer to benefit from this experience, each 2-hour session is limited to 4 writers.

Each writer will have 30 minutes to have their work(s) read and critiqued by the group.

Each writer must bring at least one manuscript (article, short story, poem, chapter, etc) for review

Each participant is required to critique the other writers' manuscripts (guidance for providing verbal and written feedback will be provided at the meeting)

Each participant is required to stay for the full 2-hour session.

Please have interested members respond directly to Cheryl Black via email by Friday, April 28th. The response should include participant's name, email, phone number, and which critique session(s) they are interested in attending.

On May 2nd, I will send out an email listing the name of the participants for each critique session and the location of the meetings.
