SHOW AND GROW your PROSE with Professional Critique

Join us (in-person!) at The Muse Writers Center on Saturday, September 10 for our second Show-and-Grow event of 2022. Don't miss the chance to get free, professional feedback on your written work. 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 PLEASE), but in all cases reading time will be capped at ten minutes. Reading slots are limited, and submissions can be made through our website portal.

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.

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.

After the event, many of us head over to Plaza Del Sol for lunch, conversation, and fellowship. All are welcome to join.

To submit your work, use the form below. If you are unable to submit work through the form, email work to

We hope to see you there!

Saturday, September 10th, 9:45am until 12 noon: The Muse Writers Center, 2200 Colonial Ave, #3, Norfolk VA 23517.

WE HAVE FOUR SUBMISSIONS AT THIS POINT, but we welcome anyone who wants to listen and learn.
