What to bring to meetings: We ask those interested in joining us to wait until their second meeting to share (read) work. This gives one an opportunity to observe our critique style and etiquette.
Focus/Genres: We are a group of published and unpublished writers and illustrators who specialize in creating stories, poems, and articles for children (we don't read work written for adults). Our goal is to share and receive honest, constructive criticism in a positive, supportive atmosphere. We seek those who are serious about their craft.
