    Any person under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend this or any other GLVWG event.

    A Successful Author is an Amateur
    Who Didn't Quit


    So Practice Your Craft:

    Put Something on Paper


    Come to the Writers Cafe and get instant feedback about your work. All levels are represented from new writers to seasoned professionals.

    If you would like a Read and Critique, bring about 700 words to read to the group and get instant feedback about your work.  Any genre, fiction or non-fiction, poetry, screenplays or memoirs are all welcome.

    700 words is 2+ pages TNR 12 point font, double spaced, 1" margins all around.

    We will be limited to 20 readers, split into two groups so all can be accommodated.  You can still join the meeting, but only the first 20 to register will be able to read their work. There will be a waitlist, so have something available to read in case someone doesn't show up.

    Readings will be 11 minutes (more or less) including feedback.

    750 words takes about 5-6 minutes to read, so be wise how you use your 10 (more or less)minutes.

    Total registration will be limited to 25, because more than that would be impossible to manage.

    We will be using Zoom, and you will get an invitation via email when you register, and again the day of the Cafe.

    Schmooze with fellow writers and meet some GLVWG members.
