June critical reading

As always, the critical reading group will be getting together to discuss/inspect/dissect/pick apart an amazing short story. This month we will be reading Painted Ocean, Painted Ship by Rebecca Makkai. This story can be found in either the Best American Short Stories Anthology, V. 10 or online here at jstor by signing up for a free account.

We’ll be meeting Wed. June 21st at 7 pm at the Columbus Capital Club.

Each month, the reading workshop meets to read the work of a published author from a writer’s perspective, breaking down what makes the story work and why. It’s one of the best ways you can improve as a writer. Never been to a workshop? Check out our FAQ.

This event is free and open to the public, and you do not need to be a CCC member to attend. The Capital Club is located on the lobby floor of the Doubletree Suites Hotel on South Front Street. Get more details in this ancient blog post.

Check back next week when we’ll be posting discussion questions for you to mull over before the meetup.
