A reminder: we always have critique groups during the second part of the meeting! Everyone is welcome to participate, but it’s best to contact Tim at the email below if you are thinking of submitting your writing to be reviewed by a small, intimate critique group. You can always change your mind, but this way, you will be on the mailing list so we can keep you updated as the date nears.
