Members’ Prose Critique Group
May 7 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Lead by Ari Bookman, the Hatchery prose critique group is a small group of Hatchery members who want to give and receive feedback on their unpublished work. We’ll meet every couple of weeks, reading two pieces per meeting to give each piece plenty of time, with an eye to getting the work ready to publish. There are no genre restrictions — you can bring fiction, non-fiction, journalism, memoir, YA or children’s books, treatments, or any other bit of prose you want to workshop. The goal is to create a committed team of engaged and attentive readers who can help each other become more polished, productive, and publishable.
