    Search your hard drive for that work-in-progress or completed piece and join us February 23 for a moderated critique roundtable session. Each writer will have 5-10 minutes (depending on number of critiques) to read their work and ask the audience specific questions about it. Please be prepared to ask specific questions about your writing – asking “what do you think” usually does NOT get you the answers you need or want.

    Saturday, February 23

    1:00 –3:00 p.m.

    Faith Lutheran Church Conference

    3313 Arlington

    Arlington, VA 22201

    Note: Please park in the rear parking lot and enter via the ramp, both on Jackson Street. Ring local doorbell if door is locked.
