If you need constructive feedback on your WIP, please join Russell Pike, our excellent critique facilitator, at May’s first-Saturday meeting.

Reserve a spot to read by replying to the email by 8pm Thursday. If you are planning to attend and not read, also please respond so readers will know how many copies to make.

Maximum reading is 10 pages double spaced. You may need to make about 6 copies to hand out for people to follow along, but we will let you know how many to make by late Thursday.

If you are looking for a specific type of feedback or help in a certain area, let us know what to listen for as you read your piece aloud to the group.

After your reading, critiquing begins with the person on your left, then continues clockwise around the table giving each person a chance to comment. Listeners will write notes and their own names on the handouts before returning them.

Happy writing!

In the meantime, keep in touch by joining our Facebook Open Forum at https://www.facebook.com/groups/pocatellowriters/.

In the United States, creators of original works are granted copyright © protection and exclusive rights to reproduce, perform, and distribute their own work.

Your writing is protected upon its creation, but are you still worried that it might be stolen?

Charity  Henson Samora offered to lead a discussion about copyright at our mid-month meeting next Saturday.  We would love to see you all there.  Bring your experiences and ideas.

In the meantime, please keep in touch on our Facebook open Forum at https://www.facebook.com/groups/pocatellowriters/.

If you need constructive feedback on your WIP, reserve a spot to read by responding to the Critique Facilitator’s email announcement. Maximum reading is 10 pages double spaced, but keep it as short as possible to give more people a chance. Make about 10 copies so that listeners can follow along.

After the reading, critiquing begins with the person on the reader’s left, then continues clockwise around the table so that a different person begins each round, reducing the possibility that the same person will dominate.

During feedback, it is customary for the author to refrain from making a lot of comments or explanations. Just listen and absorb to get a feel for the reaction of actual readers out there in the real world and use it to your advantage.

Listeners will write notes and their own names on the handouts before returning them, in case the author wants to follow-up for clarification.

Hope to see you there. In the meantime, keep in touch by joining our Facebook OPEN FORUM at https://www.facebook.com/groups/pocatellowriters/.
