Some logistics:

  • 4-6 writers for each 6-meeting session (small group means deeper, more focused comments)
  • Meet in a real-time Google Hangout every third week
  • 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

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.
