Critique

 

At the heart of Blue Ridge Writers' benefits, is the monthly critique session, where members give and receive constructive comments on their works in a supportive environment.

One member says, "The atmosphere is congenial; the feedback essential to improving my writing."

Another says, "It is so important to be part of a supportive community that helps me be the best writer I can be."


On the third Friday of each month, members gather at WriterHouse and the Northside Public Library in Charlottesville to critique work submitted for discussion.  Members are assigned to a small discussion group (4-6 members) that meets from 1 - 4 pm. 


Only members may submit up to ten pages of works in progress. Upon confirmation, guests may observe one session prior to joining. 


NOTE: The WriterHouse critique groups will meet July 31,  2020, instead of the regularly scheduled July 17. The Northside Library groups remain on the regularly scheduled July 17 date.

April Critique Meetings

In response to recommended social distancing requirements, our April critique group meetings are being conducted in several alternate formats: either by on-line conference, teleconference, or email. 

We plan to continue the program and provide support to member projects for the months to come as appropriate and in conformance with the open/closed status of meeting facilities and social distancing recommendations.


Interest in continuing the monthly sessions is high among participants, so we are adapting to maintain these monthly meetings. I hope you'll consider joining us, regardless of the times we're in. the benefits of participation are multi-faceted. We never know what we're going to learn from others, or how valuable our life's experiences and writing expertise can be to others.


If you have questions, email louise-mitchell@comcast.net.
