Weeding & Pruning is a manuscript group composed of five Writing It Up in the Garden writers.
-For the first hour, everyone writes quietly, working on whatever they want to work on.
-Second hour, one of the five writers is on the hot seat with her manuscript, or one songwriter=2 songs, one poet=2-3 poems.
-Hot-seater sends manuscript four days ahead of the meeting, and the rest of the group must review.
-Feedback is prescriptive, gentle and honest.
-All forms are welcome: novel-in-progress, short story, poetry, song, essay, memoir
If you are interested, please let me know, and submit a short excerpt of writing or a song to Nerissa@Nields.com
