We will be small groups of 5 meeting to discuss each writer’s work with a professional editor, agent, or author. You will be asked to send a story or novel chapter of up to 5000 words by August 1, 2018 and you will be sent the stories for the others in your group to read and critique before the event. All writers and storytellers are welcome to participate, whether you are just getting started or you are already published. We believe that we can all learn from each other. All are welcome!
