Short Prose Meet-up is a chance for prose writers (creative nonfiction) to give and receive immediate constructive feedback on 1-2 pages (750 words or less) of a work in progress. Learn what is working, what may need revision, and what you can do to advance your prose. Become a stronger writer by becoming an effective reader. Wonders may occur when a supportive group considers the written word. Facilitated by author and SDWG member Celia Jeffries.
