Coffee and Critique, the critique group Lou Turner and I co-founded in 2007, has some exciting projects brewing.
Lou came up with the brilliant idea for our group to put together an anthology. Lou and I are serving as co-editors of this members-only anthology. We are looking for well crafted, critiqued, polished, and elegant unpublished short stories and essays of up to 2,500 words. The C&C members' anthology will be published by High Hill Press, with a release date and book launch scheduled for late fall. Stay tuned for details.
My idea isn't quite as glamorous, but it's entertaining, informative, and a lot of fun. Beginning this month I will post my interviews with members of Coffee and Critique on the Coffee and Critique blog. The feature is called "Take Ten with Coffee and Critique."
Using a Q&A format, a selected member will respond to ten writing-related questions, plus one bonus question. It's a great way to get to know the remarkable members of C&C, as well as gain insight into their writing processes. The Take Ten feature will include member bios and links to their websites or blogs.
Earlier today I published my first Take Ten interview with Doyle Suit. If you get a chance, check out Doyle's interview.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Look for my review of "The Great Gatsby" movie next week.
