March 4–Show and Grow Your Prose with Professional Critique

March 4, 2023 @ 11:15 am - 1:30 pm EST

Don’t miss the chance to get free, professional feedback on your written work at Gus and George’s Spaghetti and Steak restaurant–4312 Virginia Beach Blvd, Virginia Beach, VA 23452. Presenters will read up to ten minutes of their material, which will be followed by another ten minutes of feedback from our guest critiquers Lauran Strait and Michael Khandelwal. If you desire, your material can be read anonymously by one of our staff. We accept fiction and nonfiction (NO POETRY or SCRIPTS PLEASE), but in all cases reading time will be capped at ten minutes. Reading slots are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Send submissions to HRWriters@cox.net.

Non-presenting audience members are both welcome and encouraged to attend. Material is displayed on the auditorium screen so everyone can view the text and read along. Lunch can be ordered to enjoy during the event but you are under no obligation to purchase lunch. However, if you plan to come and listen but don’t plan to eat, we’d like to know about this ahead of time. We need to give the restaurant a fairly accurate estimate of how many will eat lunch so they can assure they have enough staff on hand to accommodate us.

Not only are these events great for learning more about the craft of writing, by attending you also show your support for your fellow authors and writing community.

All are welcome to join.
