How long have you been writing?

Since I was about twelve. Have cranked out some pretty abysmal stuff, but in fifty years I was bound to get better.

You must be at work on a novel, or short story collection to join this group: Have you written a novel length work you'd like critiqued?

I did finish a children's book about twenty years ago. It would need a lot of work before I'd try to submit it again. I'm kind of glad now that I couldn't find a publisher for it.

Have you ever critiqued another writer's work or had yours critiqued? Did you learn anything from it?

I belonged to a critique group about 20 years ago and one of our published valley writers was in it. I also critique every book I read and keep notes about it. Critiquing keeps you aware of what works in writing and what doesn't.

What genre(s) do you write? Have you checked the pages tab to see what genres this group reads and critiques? Is yours a genre we read?

I'm a retired children's librarian and have lived in Phoenix for over thirty years.
