Join us for a gathering of First Responders!
No, you won't need to carry a badge, wheel a stretcher, or haul out a fire hose. What we need are readers and writers who will bring an open mind and a willingness to share their thoughts as we host another breakout First Responders group.
First Responders focuses on characterization, dialogue, plot, or setting in a work of fiction from any genre. One writer brings a sample of his or her work (no longer than three pages) and reads aloud or distributes written copies. The assembled group responds or gives feedback to the writer. These valuable insights will aid—potentially rescue—the writer who has chosen to share his or her work. Responders will benefit from inclusion in the writing process and may wish to share a work-in-process in future sessions.
For the August 12th session, a BARN writer will bring a character sketch developed for a novel. Your feedback will focus on the believability of the character—from the aspect of backstory, dialogue, goals, fears, mannerisms, flaws, etc.
Take this opportunity to help a fellow writer and have some fun. Register now. Free for BARN members and a $10 drop-in guest fee for non-members.
