Author Feedback Session

Join New West Writers to get feedback on your writing and offer feedback to others! This friendly group of local authors has been meeting since 1990 and invites you to join them in their circle of feedback. Bring 6 – 8 copies of the piece you wish to have critiqued – the group accepts any genre. The maximum length of each piece is 800 words. Participants will give the rest of the group some idea of the areas about which they’re looking for feedback (e.g. accuracy of dialogue, scene setting, description of the characters etc.) and then read out their own writing. Members of the group will then offer their feedback, in the spirit of mutual support. Of course, as author of the work, participants can take notice of as much or as little of the feedback as they wish. The group gives honest opinions and remember that critiquing is not criticism, it is constructive feedback.

Each hour of the session will have 3 participants with 20 minutes each. Participants will stay for the whole hour to receive their feedback and participate in offering feedback to others.

Please register by emailing, and indicate which hour you would like to participate in (11-12, 12-1, 1-2, or 2-3). There are 12 available spots and are allocated on a first come first served basis.
