Frequently Asked Questions
How many times do we meet?
A semester = 8 meetings.
How long is each session?
When do we meet?
Fall semester runs from September through December. Spring semester runs from late January to May. The Thursday group meets 2:00 to 4:00pm (U.S. Central Time); the Sunday group meets 1:30 to 3:30pm. See the schedule below for specific dates.
What if I can't make one of the dates?
No problem. I usually record the meetings and then post a private link for writers within the group to check out later.
How many times would I be up for critique?
At least twice. If the group is smaller, three times.
Can't I just find a writing group where I live?
Absolutely. You may want to do that in addition to this group; you may want to do that instead of this group. But this group is likely more instructional than your local writing group, and we’re led by a career writing instructor.
Am I expected to offer critiques to others?
Yes! That work is one of the most important parts of the learning process. Putting effort into really pondering what’s working and what isn’t working is incredibly important.
What's the cost?
$300 for a semester.
