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.

In this group participants will critique each other's work in a safe and supportive environment. 

This is an opportunity to get feedback on your work in progress and practice your constructive critiquing skills. It is also a great way to get to know other writers in our group. You do not have to bring along work to participate.  Please keep submissions to double spaced, 12 font, two pages. 

A timer will be used to give everyone equal time.
