This small group will meet once a month for the next five months. This training equips writers to participate in a healthy critique group setting and then launch viable writing critique groups in June. Last year we encouraged people to come and observe. For a variety of reasons and for bonding purposes, this year writers who want to participate must commit to the following:
  • Attend all sessions.
  • Be on time.
  • Submit work for critique.
  • Critique other writer’s work.
