All persons providing critique must provide a tangible take-away to the person who submitted. This can either be done electronically through track-changes on MSWord or, if meeting in person, a hard copy is fine. If there are no submissions by Monday at noon, a feeler will be put out for alternate activities such as writing sprints, brainstorming, prompts, etc. The event page on Facebook will be updated to reflect what to expect.
