Online Writers’ Roundtable

Now, get the helpful feedback and collegial support of our Roundtables without leaving your house!

online rtUsing a method inspired by our face-to-face Roundtables, you will give and receive written (typed) feedback as well as participate in four 1.5 hr real-time conversations with your group mates.

$120 per session (4 meetings in a session)*

Deadlines for Uploading Work

Some logistics:

  • 4-6 writers for each 4-meeting session (small group means deeper, more focused comments)
  • Meet in a real-time Google Hangout one week after upload date
  • One week prior to each Hangout, participants share a Googledoc of their work (2,500 words max) so others can post comments before we “meet” in the Hangout
  • Allot approximately 15-20 minutes to commenting on each piece prior to our Hangout time.
  • Attendance at the real-time Hangouts is mandatory (with dispensation for one absence per session if absolutely necessary). It is important for written/verbal feedback to be even and equitable. No fair taking written feedback and not providing conversation on others’ pieces.
  • The verbal portion/real-time Hangout will be topic driven. (I will suggest aspects of craft for deeper exploration.)  When we have finished discussing the piece, the writer will have a few minutes to ask follow-up questions or make a comment.

*Prerequisite: Previous participation in our face-to-face Roundtables OR the equivalent. (If you have never been in a Roundtable, please contact Kim Suhr 414.881.7276 or kim@redoakwriting.com to discuss your experience with giving and receiving critique.)

Technology Requirements:

Gmail account and familiarity with Googledocs and Google Hangouts

Highspeed internet connection

Webcam and mic

Craft & Publishing Workshops

red-oak-studio

Join other writers and experts in the field to learn about topics relating to writing and marketing your work. These interactive workshops  allow you to dig deeper into your work and learn from other committed writers in a collegial setting.

In Studio

Studio workshops held on Saturday mornings from 9:30 – noon in our studio at 11709 W. Cleveland Ave, West Allis (in the education wing of Holy Trinity Church)
 
Fall 2017 Schedule TBD 

Online

Using podcasts, resource links, practice exercises and discussion boards, students access materials and post on their own schedule. (No “real time” meetings.) For maximum benefit and interaction, participants will  post work weekly and respond to other students’ writing as well. (4 modules, 1 per week with an additional week to view materials and responses.) 

 
May 1 – 31, 2017
Point of View: The Basics and Then Some

When it comes to the lens through which readers will see their story, writers have decisions to make. Third person or first? Limited or omniscient? And what about the nuances within each category? Once you have chosen who will tell your story, the fun part begins: making sure to stay true to the point of view and use it to your work’s greatest advantage. This workshop will begin with an overview of POV, then look deeper into the various perspectives you have to choose from.

WRITERS’ ROUNDTABLES
with Kim Suhr and Robert Vaughan

$105 per session ($200 for 2 sessions)

(4 meetings in a session)

The roundtables are critique groups designed to support you as you work on projects and continue developing the craft. Our experienced leaders are published writers who are also actively pursuing their own writing goals. They are committed to helping you reach your writing dreams — big project or small — fiction, nonfiction, plays or poetry.

Red Oak roundtable groups are appropriate for dedicated writers willing to share their work with a group to receive feedback, share ideas and build a network of writing friends.
