Writer's Group

ABOUT CLUB

MAY 2020
 
We meet in Clubhouse 2 on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month from 2 to 4 PM.
The Group's purpose is to provide a supportive, non-judgmental environment in which writers and others interested in writing may share what they've written and receive constructive feedback from the group.
 
Writers' Group Guidelines
  • Each writer shall bring their work, or an excerpt from their work to read.
  • Each writer's piece or excerpt is not to exceed 1100 words.
  • Writers need to make 10 copies of their written pieces to pass out to the group so that members may comment on their work. Members are asked to provide constructive comments that deal with the elements of each piece, including characterization, structure, ability of the piece to hold the reader's attention, pacing, etc., depending upon the nature of each piece.
  • Please comment first on general impressions, along with the elements of the piece that you, as the reader, thought best. Group members may also comment about elements that they feel may need additional work.
  • Time will be provided for spoken comments and/or discussion in addition to written comments.
  • Detailed edits will not be provided by the group, although typos may be marked for the writer's benefit.
  • All pieces are to be returned to the writer after reading, comments and discussion have been completed.
We look forward to establishing and maintaining an enthusiastic, positive environment for writers, one that will continue to encourage them in their efforts.
