SHOW AND GROW your PROSE with Professional Critique

Don't miss the chance to get free, professional feedback on your written work at The Muse Writers Center, 2200 Colonial Ave, #3, Norfolk VA 23517. 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 submissions must arrive no later than 72 hours prior to the start of the event.  Send submissions to 

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.

We hope to see you there! NOTE: all reading slots are filled as of 1/9/2023
