Welcome to SLO NightWriters


General Meeting Program August 14, 2018

Round Tables Critique Sessions began at 5:15 pm

Terry Sanville and Susan Tuttle will be here to critique your work

Please keep your submission to two pages, typed, 12-point font, double spaced. This is a great—and safe—way to see what the critiquing process is all about, get valuable feedback from two fantastic writers, and practice reading your work to a small audience

Rosie MaKinney will moderate a second Round Table due to popular demand.
This Round Table Session will be held in the conference room to the left of the  meeting room. 
Please don't forget to sign in first. 5:15 pm

"The flavor of my group will be a safe and supportive facilitator led critique group comprised of peers with relatively equal footing and comparable expertise, where participants can practice their constructive critique skills as well as get feedback on their own writing. Submissions will be 2 x pages, double spaced, font size 12 and will be read by another person in order to see how the writing holds up on its own." Guidlines will be explained at the start of the group.


Please note that there will be a charge of $5:00 for all non members who attend a critic group or round table. Payment will be accepted at the entrance to the meeting.

Our Speakers this evening will be Marilyn Meredith  and Teri Bayus

Marilyn will speak to us about "How to Write a Mystery."
Teri Bayus will join us to talk to us about the Central Coast Writers Conference 2017.  
Teri will answer any questions you may have.
