Critique Guidelines

 The 3rd Tuesday of each month we will discuss writing that has been submitted by two members for critique Submission word count should not exceed ????, at least not by very much. The submissions should be emailed to Crazy Buffet Critique mailing list by the 1st Tuesday meeting. (get the list of writers critiquing from Calvin) The writers submitting should include something about what they hope to get from the critique comments. Any member can provide comments. They can email them to the writer, or wait until the critique meeting to give comments. The writers will read their submissions on the 3rd Tuesday, and then the work will be discussed. Before the end of the meeting, the next writers to submit for the next month will be identified. Writers that have submitted the least recently will be considered first.
