Wouldn't it be great to get a critique
from a bunch of other writers? This is your chance!
We'll be doing critiques right in the
chatroom for this chat. Details on how to get in on the action will be
emailed to all subscribers the Friday before the chat. Make sure you're
signed up for the mailing list, and get your short (300 word max)
submission polished up! (Sign up for our mailing list
here. ) DON'T submit until you get the email!
I strongly suggest you
submit polished work. Most of our chatters are aiming for
publication. To get there, you have to be able to handle honest
critiques. I will not allow personal attacks, but problems in the
writing will be openly discussed.
If you are not in
attendance, your submission will be skipped. It's a waste of
everyone's time to critique something if the author isn't there to
essay, query letter...it doesn't matter. I recommend trying to get an entire scene
into 300 words. Full scenes get better crits.
Why only 300 words? More
than that will scroll off the screen too quickly. People need to be
able to read it, to give a good crit.
