About Writeshop

Writeshop is a writers' workshop group based in Columbus, OH. We hold meetings once a month. While we are involved in all types of writing, our focus is on science fiction, fantasy, and horror short stories and novels. Please visit the group's new page for more information about the group.

We use the Milford model for workshop critiquing: we go around in a circle, and each person gives their critique in a timely fashion with as little interruption from others as possible. Members are encouraged to discuss both what works in a manuscript as well as what needs improvement.

Our goal is to get submitted manuscripts into publishable shape. Participants have an obligation to provide honest, constructive, thoughtful, polite criticism as best they can.
