Pacific Writers Critique Group

The Pacific Writers Critique Group meets weekly on Tuesday nights, from 5pm to 8:30pm

Those interested in attending should email Pam Van Allen (pam at pamvanallen.com) by noon on Tuesday for planning purposes.  We do not accept drop-ins. This will start your orientation. Attend the first time to observe the group process. The most benefit is derived from a commitment to participate. You are welcome to come a few times and see if it is right for you. When you are ready to be critiqued you will be expected to bring multiple printed copies of your work.

We ask that readers limit their reading in group to seven pages unless we have fewer than six readers. If there are more than eight readers, we place a five page limit on readers.

We will be meeting in the Wendell Phillips Center, room 131, until April 30, 2019.

FAQ

1. What sort of writing materials should people seeking critique provide (how many copies, max number of words/pages)?

We usually bring up to 10 pages, double-spaced. It’s handy to have line numbers for each page. We send out a message to our email list and ask for responses from the members, such as who is attending and who is reading. Then we plan to bring the appropriate number of copies each time. If there aren’t enough copies, we share. Usually we have 6-10 members/copies to bring.

2. How many critiques do you expect to get through per meeting?

Usually we have 6-10 members who provide critiques. We like to stay together as one large group. If it looks like a large group, we might limit the time per critique, but the amount of feedback varies depending on the complexity of the readings.

3. How open is the event to the public, (how many people do you usually expect, and how many can the space be comfortable for?

We are in a large room at the Pacific Library (Taylor Room, third floor) and have seating at one table for at least 15. We might not want to open it up to the general public. Usually we invite people who are serious writers, and who can provide substantial, rich feedback. Our size is comfortable, and we welcome new members and visitors. If the group were to grow, we have space to have two or three groups at one time. We haven’t broken into groups so far, because we all support one another in our continuing body of work.

4. Any other information you think would be important for a first time attendee.

First time attendees are welcome to bring samples of their work. Usually the first person to arrive reads first. We support each other by focusing on the written work, and avoiding cross-talking and straying from the critique of the work that was presented. At the same time, our group discusses upcoming events and resources that are of great interest and value to the writers in the group. Group members may bring questions about writing to the group.
