The Writers' Lunch: The Art of Critiquing Fellow Writers
moderated by Taryn Edwards

Friday, June 17, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

This event will be conducted via Zoom. Register and you will be emailed the Zoom credentials.

The Writers' Lunch is virtually back! This month librarian Taryn Edwards will moderate the discussion The Art of Critiquing Fellow Writers. All writers need beta readers. Sooner or later, fellow writers will ask you to critique their work. They may or may not clearly state their expectations. How can you best help them, as you will want fellow writers to help you?

At Writers' Lunch, at noon on Friday, June 17, members of the Mechanics Institute Library and visitors from around the world will "Zoom in" and share their motivations. Join us, share and learn.

 

Panelists include Elisabeth Kauffman, Matthew Félix, and Rick Homan. Join us, share and learn!

The Writers' Lunch is a casual brown-bag lunch activity on the 3rd Friday of each month. Look forward to mini-reviews on books that have been added to our "literary craft" collection, informal presentations by member writers, and excellent conversation. Please contact Taryn Edwards if you have any questions or if you would like to be a panelist. [email protected]

 Rick Homan, who normally moderates the Writers' Lunch, writes murder mysteries and suspense novels. His Nicole Tang Noonan mysteries are set on a college campus in rural Ohio and in San Francisco, Nicole's home town. Prior to taking up the craft of crime fiction, Rick performed as an actor and guitarist. Find out more at www.rickhoman.com.
