After our September hiatus, Marco Island Writers, Inc. is back on Wednesday, October 12, 2016, resuming its regular second Wednesday of the month schedule.
The agenda is a panel presentation on First Page Critique. Members have submitted the first page of a current work for anonymous review by a panel of peers. At this meeting, the panel will read and discuss 10 or 12 of the submissions. All who send in first pages that are not read at the meeting will get written feedback from the reviewers. This is a “double blind study” in that neither writers nor reviewers will be identified.
All panel members will read all submissions, and they will determine together which ones to discuss at the meeting. Their comments will include a variety of issues that are essential to allwriters and should provide a well-rounded discussion. No need to have a first page submitted to benefit from this meeting.
Marco Island Writers, Inc. is open to writers of all skill levels and genres. No matter what motivates your interest in writing, our group may be able to help you gain a new level of enjoyment from it. Our motto is “Writers Helping Writers.” Meeting place is Marco Center for the Arts, 1010 Winterberry Drive, Marco Island. First time visitors are welcome with no admission fee. We meet the second Wednesday of each month, year round, 6 to 8 PM. Doors open at 5:30 PM for sign-in and social prior to the meeting.
