From 10am – 12pm.
Also known as manuscript clinics, these mornings are open to everyone, published or unpublished, and provide a great networking opportunity to meet other like-minded writers. There are some authors that like to keep their writing close to the chest until their draft is completed. While other authors benefit from feedback and critique throughout their creative process. Regardless of your technique, you can always come along to help us reach the critical mass necessary to provide that feedback to those who ask, and to encourage your fellow writers to aim for their goals, whatever they may be – competitions, publication, cathartic reasons or for the fun and enjoyment of writing.
Write a short piece inspired by this month’s image on the corkboard or email less than 1,500 words for critique from your peers to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mornings are completely free and we recommend coming to a few to see if they are helpful to you before becoming a member and supporting the club. If you’d like feedback on a piece, but you’re uncomfortable reading your own work, someone can read it on your behalf.
If there are enough submissions, a limited number of booklets will be compiled to make the clinic run smoother. Occasionally, there will be writing exercises, Ted-ED videos or games to re-invigorate the group’s energy and creativity.
All venues that are chosen for the writers room and workshops are quiet and have disabled access.
