We are now at capacity membership. Anyone interested in joining our group will go on a waiting list.

Choose a photo that inspires you to write a story, then write that story.
Genre: open, fiction; word count: 450.
REMEMBER: Other members of the group will be reading these stories at the April meeting. Please print the stories in an easy-to-read font type and size. Size 12 is okay, but 14 is better. DO NOT put your name on your story. PLEASE NOTE: the word count is only 450, not our usual 500. Please stick to the word limit.
We will be critiquing a piece of writing submitted by Elizabeth. Please use the questions we’ve created for critiquing.
- 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. This is the last meeting of the season before we break for summer. The next meeting after this will be in September.
