Meets 2nd & 4th Thursdays, 6-8pm virtually only at this time
The VB Writes Fiction Group feature a unique array of members, whose experience range from those attempting to discover their voice, to those aspiring toward that completed novel. All members come to the group with an open mind, ready to critique a wide variety of writing styles. We ask that new members attend at least two meetings prior to submitting their own work for critique. We look forward to learning more about your current or upcoming fiction project, as well as your background in writing. Facilitators: Kenneth Meyer and Tom Altreu.
Meets 1st & 3rd Sundays, 3-5pm, VIRTUALLY
In order to serve the needs of writers who cannot meet in person at this time, we're happy to offer this VIRTUAL Writing Group that is also open to newcomers and drop-ins.
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. Facilitated by Richard Gerry and Kendra Cook. For more information about joining this group, please email dickgerryATcomcast.net and kendra1010ATcomcast.net.
