Have you been hungering for helpful feedback about a novella (20K words and up) or novel (of any genre) that you have begun writing, have completed, or are on the nth revision of? Welcome to our Book Length Fiction Workshop!
Because we’re looking at longer works, we may form a somewhat close-knit group of ongoing participants while always welcoming new writers joining us.
We meet on alternate Wednesday evenings, 6:30-8:30, at the Burlington studio. We’re interested in fiction anywhere in Orson Scott Card’s MICE Quotient, meaning your book doesn’t have to be a romantic or popular style novel. It might be fantasy, noir, horror, science fiction, humor, or whatever. Not interested in reading some of those? We’ll focus on how to read, analyze, and provide helpful feedback to our fellow authors even if we “have never read” and are “not interested in” their genre.
Why? Because by improving our ability to read and recognize good writing, we’ll spot features of our own writing that we can improve. A key goal will be to develop our ability to provide intelligent and valuable feedback to each other (and thus learn how to write more powerfully ourselves).
If this is your first time at this workshop, please email host firstname.lastname@example.org for important info. (If you send a message via MeetUp, make sure you have chosen to accept messages sent to you.) All skill levels are welcome. Respect for each other is a must.
