Meets 1st & 3rd Sundays, 3-5pm

We have eclectic tastes that range from biography, history, nature writing, and self-help, but tend to focus primarily on the memoir. Our process is to bring a printed copy of your piece for each member of the group to follow while you read aloud. The group critiques aloud and also writes notes on your print out, and returns the print outs to you for you to keep. Critiquing is honest and encouraging. We ask that new members attend at least two meetings before submitting their own works for critique.
