Mustard Creative Writing Club

Mustard Creative Writing Club is where writers can share their writing and readers can offer friendly and helpful critiques. We accept short stories, poems, and sections of novels up to four pages; we read three pieces each meeting. You can also attend meetings without sharing your writing. If you'd like to read something at the meeting and receive constructive criticism from other Mustard seeds, please send it to before the Wednesday of the meeting so we can make copies for the meeting attendees.

In a typical meeting, the three writers who have submitted work will read their pieces aloud. Each piece will get about twenty minutes of feedback from meeting attendees — things they liked, impressions, and suggestions. Feel free to come to read inspiring writing, hang out, and meet the amazing writing community at Notre Dame.
