Purpose of the Group: To give and receive feedback on their work, and through this process learn from one another.
The group guidelines are as follows:
1) Come with something that you have written: at least bullet points for a character, an idea, an outline, a paragraph. For longer pieces of writing, please make sure that it will take group members no longer than 5 minutes to read and comment on what you have written. Double space your work. It is not expected that your work is a polished, finished product. The expectation is that each member has something in writing to share. Please make copies for the group. If you can't, make copies for the group at home, we have 3 copy machines here at the library to use. Copies are $0.10 per page.
Consider arriving at 9:30 AM to give yourself time to make your copies and to get a fresh cup of coffee or tea.
2) If there is time after the group finishes critiques, then members can share something that they read about the writing process that inspired them and that may do the same for others.
