There are NO rules, other than The Writing Rules.
Nor are there any office holders or titles other than Member.

The Writing Rules

As stated on the front page, we attend "...to read and critique members' writings with the aim of publication." To that aim we have adapted and adopted Robert A Heinlein's rules for writing.

Our short verion

  1. You must write
  2. You must finish
  3. You must submit

The expanded variant

  1. You must write.
  2. You must finish what you write.
  3. You must refrain from rewriting, except to editorial order.
  4. You must put the work on the market.
  5. You must keep the work on the market until it is sold

The Meeting Format

The Group is governed by the common sense consensus of the Members. One writer reads at a time. Other members listen and provide a critique. Critiques are about the author's work not the author, it's not personal. Don't make it so.
