Friday, November 13    2:00 - 4:00pm   (VFH Conference Room)


As a follow-up to our Oct. 30 Fralin Museum tour in preparation for their Writers' Eye writing contest, we will meet on Friday, November 13 from 2:00 to 4:00pm to have a critique-of-sorts of contest entries. If you prefer not to read and receive feedback on your contest entry, feel free to bring an excerpt of another work-in-progress. There will be a time limit for reading your work and we'll determine the amount of time for each participant when we see how many show up. Feel free to bring (10) ten copies of your selection to share with the group (optional). To help with planning, your notice of intent to participate would be greatly appreciated. Simply send a note using the Contact Form on this website.
