The November meeting for the East Hants Writers’ Group focussed on the craft of writing takes place tonight November 21st. As usual, we will meet at the Elmsdale Public Library, Elmsdale, East Hants, Nova Scotia, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
We are now at capacity membership. Anyone interested in joining our group will go on a waiting list.
1) Take a real life experience from your past and use it as the skeleton of a story. In other words, rewrite it into another time and/or genre. Maximum word length: 500
2) Critique a piece of writing submitted by Dawn. Our new critiquing guidelines involves answering these questions:
- List the strengths of the story.
- What areas of the story can be improved.
- Were there any times you were confused? When?
- Was the dialogue realistic?
- Does the story work? If not, why?
- If there are repeated mechanical mistakes, please make note.
Hope to see all members there.
