A typical meeting has us reading from a members' work, and giving constructive feedback with regard to plot, characterization, grammar, continuity, etc. Generally the work being presented is a short story, a set of poems, a chapter or chapters of a longer work. These are uploaded and read prior to the meeting and then verbal as well as written feedback is given directly to the author during the meeting. Please note however that we do not do line-edits as this is what your editor is paid to do.
Members are scheduled to read a few months in advance, based on their participation in the previous scheduled rotation. New members who have joined within a given rotation are added to the beginning, middle or end of the new rotation based on their preference.
If you would like to attend one of these meetings refer to the “Joining Us” tab and "Contact Us" and we will give you more information.
In 2022 we started a partnership with Edmonton Public Library and will be hosting special meetings during the year with guests, presenters, workshops, and more. The majority of these will likely be be held at the Capilano Branch Library which is located at 9915 67 Street NW.
These special meetings are open to all aspiring writers, pre-registration is required through EPL. The times and dates will be published on our blog, via the EPL events page, and on this site and will vary to allow all to attend. Popular topics may be offered more than once.
